“Air Racing Over Reno!” is a full colour glossy publication printed in 8
1/2" x 11" format.
This soft cover publication contains 128 pages of English text with a
massive amount of stunning colour photographs of racing aircraft both

at Reno are included along with some text explaining the history.
Throughout the book there are many detail shots of the heavily modified
Mustangs and Sea Furies along with some of the much smaller Formula 1
class aircraft. During the air racing shows there are many different
aircraft visiting Reno including display teams such as the USAF
Thunderbirds. The text outlines the rules of air racing and details some
of the incredible speeds achieved by some of the aircraft.
This is a comprehensive and nicely illustrated publication which will be
a welcome addition to the library collection of any Air Racing
enthusiast, or modeller wanting good reference detail for modified air
