Title: The Reno Air Races Live on!

 The fears of last year have passed.
Nothing but pure joy that they continue, and i was able to return.  ;D

Here's a nice little picture we took of an F-22 Raptor with its bomb doors open...

Not a P-51, nor would it be. Navy planes are what you got there ;D  Bearcat, perhaps?

Nice pics Dano!
I wish I could have gone, I'd really loved to see the F22 in flight.
Hope you enjoyed the show.

Had one of those old/new flys at our local air show a couple years ago, it was fun to watch one of our new planes trying to "Keep down" with one of our old fighters. GWTW just happens to be right in the flight path here and is a fine spot to hang out during the shows. We've never gotten one of the US flight teams out here but Beale AFB always sends out a demo flight and the Canadian Snow Gooses have made the show a regular stop, they always put on a nice show, "Eh?".   ;)   Glad to see last years tradegy didn't dampen the show, when we had a crash it shut down the show for a year or two.
