The Reno Air Races are a time when everyone can relax and enjoy themselves as warbirds really cut loose on the speed. There aren’t too many events left quite like the National Championship Air Races, carrying on a tradition from nearly a century ago. It’s one thing to see warbirds pull off some flybys, but its so much more fun to see them compete against each other.
“Held every September just north of Reno, the National Championship Air Races have become an institution for northern Nevada and aviation enthusiasts from around the world. For one week, the high desert north of Reno becomes home to hundreds of aircraft, their pilots and crews.”
