Fly Low, Fly Fast: Inside Reno Air Races
by Robert Gandt
Book takes us into the high-risk world of Unlimited Air Racing at the Reno National Air Races. Flying wingtip to wingtip around pylons at nearly 500 mph, just yards above the sagebrush, Reno's big throaty warbirds are piloted by adrenaline-addicted, Type-A elite whose oversize talent and egos spawn a hundred stories. Book traces the history of this colorful, often deadly sport, and follows the evolution of the competition planes from the exotic custom contraptions of the 1930s to today's machines like the Bearcat and Mustang.
