Red Bull Air Races - Wow!

Fri May 25, 2007 11:41 pm

Anyone attended any of the Red Bull Air Races? I'm able to watch the recorded races on Rush HD (available on Dish Network's HD package.)

They're really something to watch- what skill and guts those guys have! Really amazing piloting.

I can only imagine what experiencing a race live and in person would be like.

Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.

It's not affiliated with Red Bull, but we have the Reno Air Races not too far from here. I haven't had the chance to attend one yet, but I have a coworker who goes to them.

Those planes just look fast, even when they're sitting still.

YES, I was in Rio de Jainero! Absolutly amazing. I stayed with a friend who has a flat looking into direction of the Botafogo Bay where the race took place! Unfortunatly one house is in your view from his living room  Big grin but we watched from the beach.

Simply amazing! It is worth it to go and watch it, although it really really takes long until the final races.
