To my Florida Pelicans.... / Reno

To my new friends in Florida,

Some of you know I was attending the Reno Air Races, well I was there. The Aircraft hit our VIP box, but me and my father are ok. I Just wanted y'all to know I am OK. If anyone is interested I can post up the details of what happened here

P.S.- Yes I know this is not the off-topic area, but I don't really deal with them anyway, so I thought the Turbo guys might want the inside scoop.

Will be flying back monday if anyone wants to get some beers, boy I could sure use one.

Good to hear that you and your dad are ok. It's a miracle that more people weren't killed.
I wonder what the future of the air races are now. In the round-edged world that we live in today some bleeding heart will try to end the races; we can count on that.

Wow, that must have been beyond intense and scary. I've seen the short video on the news and havn't looked for it on you tube.

I'd kinda like to hear your story of the experience.
