Remarks: Lee Behel taxiing out in "American Spirit" for some practice time on the course at the 2007 Reno National Championship Air Races. Although flown by Rick Vandam at the time, "American Spirit" would end up sixth in the Jet Gold at an average speed of 440.878mph. In the background John Penney pilot of Unlimited legend "Rare Bear", has just climbed off of runway 08 for his practice on the course in "Pip Squeak".
Remarks: This may be a "simple" shot of an UA A320 but it for the crew of United 353 (UAL353) it was little more intense. While enroute to Sacramento (KSMF) from Denver (KDEN) they smelled smoke in the cockpit and diverted to RNO. They requested fire to meet them but were not expecting to evacuate, landed long on 16R and taxied the United gates with fire and ops in tow. They ended up departing back to SMF around 6:50pm that evening.
