    Rich, Re: Reno Air Races. Havng been there several times and having seen the unlimited planes race at over 400 mph, I can say that an accident of this type is most unusual and had to have been caused by a malfunction. The course turns are nowhere near the stands where the public sits. I hope this accident doesn’t kill the air races.
