Aviation Art 1991 Reno Air Races "Going for the Gold"

Description: As the nine Unlimiteds charge down the “chute” at maximum power, the T-33 pace plane, leaving a marking trail from its wingtips, pulls up and away, beginning what some consider (for those who have witnessed it), the most exciting moment in all of motor sports racing, even including the start of the “Indianapolis 500”. This was the inspiration behind the piece created here, which depicts the beginning of the Unlimited Championship Final at the 1991 Reno Air Races. Former two-time Unlimited Champion, Steve Hinton, pilots the T-33 Red Knight pace plane, as another former Unlimited Champion, John Crocker, rides along as a passenger in the back seat. Gentlemen, you have a race!

Number 18: Tsunami, Pilot: Skip Holm (five time Unlimited Champion)
Number 77: Rare Bear, Pilot: Lyle Shelton (six time Unlimited Champion)
Number 7: Strega, Pilot: Bill Destefani (seven time Unlimited Champion)
Number 8: Dreadnought, Pilot: Dennis Sanders
