I'll be there Monday. A good site to monitor the action is http://aafo.com/hangartalk/index.php.

4360 powered Sea Furys (Furies?) Dreadnaught and Furias are there. Last I heard Bob Odegaard was still trying to get F2G race 74 there. My fingers are still crossed.

The diesel NXT is "Big Frog" from France. Here is their site (in French): http://www.bigfrog.fr/Accueil.html

On their site, they list the engine as a SMA SR-305 e. Here is a wikilink about it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMA_SR305-230

And here is the engine's EASA Type Certificate Data Sheet in PDF (you click on the link it will download the pdf):

I guess that's where the rest of ya are hanging out.
No report for the 2011 Reno Air Races.
It's all bad news. We lost a Grand old man, dedicated to what he did and a piece of aviation history. The races were canceled Friday after the Gold Race. I could have lived without seeing that crash or any more crashes of any kind. I knew there was going to be dead people at impact.
