What do you get when you combine planes, pilots, and aerobatics? The Reno Air Races! This weekend I took a road-trip up to Reno, Nevada. I brought along 3 friends, 1 camera, and 0 knowledge about planes.

And I learned a lot. I got to spend time with the top pilots in the country and the best pit crews 'round. These folks work with massive pieces of machinery. They tinker, fix, and repair. Naturally, I'm going to tell you all about them. But before you get the full repair story, here are some teaser photographs of this year's Reno Air Races—just a few of my favorite moments!
