Video Update: Voodoo P-51 For Reno 2010 - Gettin' Ready To Race!

 This video from a couple weeks back gives a nice update on the work done on the Voodoo P-51 in preperation for Reno 2010, which will be here soon! Check out my Voodoo post from Reno 09, and then keep your eyes on this colorful beast this year. The Unlimited Gold race on Sunday last year saw the airplane running very strong in second place right up until some serious engine trouble. Fortunately the 'mayday' pull up and landing were no major problem, but their Reno dreams were over for 2009.

 There's good reason to think that Voodoo will be right there in the mix again this year. I highly recommend you get to the Reno Air Races if at all possible... it's an awesome sight and sound - September 15-19, 2010.

 

 Here's an interesting view from inside the cockpit at the 2008 Reno Air Races. I recommend you watch this one full screen for max effect.

 I especially like watching the shadow of the airplane (or both VooDoo and another airplane) as they run around the course at 450+ mph at less than 100 feet of the ground!  Crazy and Cool!
