Remark
Photographer
N777L / 77 (cn D.1170) Race #77, "Rare Bear", awaits the start of the 1991 Reno Air Races. Rare Bear is a Grumman F8F-2 built by Lyle Shelton from a collection of parts and powered by a Wright R-3350 (instead of the usual P&W R-2800 found in Bearcats). This aircraft has won the Unlimited Gold Race at Reno twelve times.

Untitled
North American/Rogers P-51R
Reno - Reno-Stead (RTS)
USA - Nevada, September 1997
Remark
Photographer
N57LR (cn 87-1002) "Miss Ashley II" in the pits at the 1997 Reno Air Races. Bill Rogers built this Unlimited class racer by combining the fuselage of a P-51 Mustang (built from plans obtained from NASM) with the wings and horizontal tail of a Lear Jet 23 (cn 23-018). The aircraft was powered by a Rolls Royce Griffon with counter rotating propellers, taken from an Avro Shackleton patrol bomber. Miss Ashley II was destroyed in a crash at the Reno Air Races in 1999 and its pilot Gary Levitz was killed.
