For the first 20 minutes or so it was really cool but then even for me a helicopter nerd, it just got repetitive.

I took a few pictures so I thought I would share them.

So, this week is the week! The national air races in Reno, Nevada!

Just a short couple of hours from my house, dad always takes Friday off and we go for the day.

Is anybody else going, want to go, or wish they could go?

If you can go it is a MUST!
