Reno Nevada Pylon Racing

In 2011 a horrific crash at the annual pylon racing event, typical speeds of 500MPH (805 KPH) turns a beautiful P51 Mustang into something that eats your soul. Even the engine appears to disintegrate. The sound of impact is chilling. This event has been on my bucket list and a close friend goes every year except THIS one. Its unimaginable how many planes in WWII found a demise similar to this. I don't know why this was on my mind today but I thought I would post it. These birds are highly tuned and if you watch other vids, you can hear the awesome power these Rolls Royce engines produce. 3200 plus HP. After this crash they have moved the stands further back from the course now to increase spectator safety.
