If you’re a Reno fan you won’t want to miss Scott Germain’s expert play-by-play that leaves you feeling as though you were there for the action.
How did the Purple People and their P-51, Voodoo, win the 2013 Unlimited Gold Championship after years of coming up short? In this story Scott Germain tells how everything came together.
Joe Joiner is a quiet hero who says he’s nothing special. Steve Chapis documented his amazing stories as a combat pilot flying P-51 Mustangs with the legendary 4th Fighter Group, the Debden Eagles. You will enjoy these never before published stories of combat and camaraderie.
The namesake of Joe Joiner’s World War II 4th Fighter Group P-51 Mustang, The Rebel, is owned and flown by Doug Matthews. His career started with combat in Vietnam, progressed through a hundred speed and altitude records, and culminated in a record-setting flight on May 22, 2013. This story takes you on an odyssey from the Brown Water Navy to 42,569 feet.
Lyle Jansma captured a rare flight that will likely never be repeated. The Erickson Aircraft Collection’s maintenance team worked overtime to prepare its fully original P2V Neptune for the transfer to the collection’s new home in Madras, Oregon.
The Tennessee Museum of Aviation is home to two P-47 Thunderbolts painted in 57th Fighter Group colors. Although amazing, that is not the most remarkable aspect of their story. Uwe Glaser tells the tale of how these fighters ended up together, and how their owners became friends.
Steve Chapis takes us back in time to meet Reno’s first unlimited champion, Mira Slovak. Read how Mira’s story began in the 1940s, twisted through the 1950s with his jetliner defection from Communism and speed boat racing, then turned him toward air racing in the 1960s and ‘70s.
