There is nothing like the Reno Air Races anywhere else. Where else could you hope to see highly modified 70-year-old warbirds racing each other at speeds approaching 500mph, 40 feet off the ground, wingtip to wingtip? The sound these planes make as they roar past the crowd is incredible, you can feel it in your chest. I've attended these event... More

I've attended 22 years of the greatest Air Show on earth! As a pilot, this is the ultimate. The races, the pits, the static displays all make for a fantastic few days. We usually rent a motor home and stay for several days on site. Although a dangerous sport , having witnessed several fatal accidents,it is still the greatest sport... More

This was our first visit to the Reno Air Races and so glad we went. Thoroughly enjoyed our day, a little more shade over the grand stands would be nice.

I have been to the Reno Air Races several times. I always enjoy the thrill of seeing the planes fly over and especially seeing the old planes along with the latest jets. There is plenty of food and drink for everyone and the exhibitors are fantastic! I expect to continue going for the next few years.

We visited on the first day as my husband has always wanted to go to the Air Races. Everyone was very friendly and laid back and we spent a very enjoyable day looking at all sorts of planes etc before seeing some exciting racing and displays by stunt pilots. Although it wasn't busy because it was the first day, we... More

Frankly, air races themselves bore me a bit. The idea of watching a bunch of crazies expose themselves and a huge crowd to death just isn't very excited. However, I grew up living on and around Air Force bases during the mid-1940's through the early 1960's where I was around airplanes all my early life and went to several air... More

My husband and I have visited Reno for the air races for over 15 years. We are always glad to see the variety of displays in the pits and the actual races. This year, however, we were disappointed with the disproportionate share of commercial plane displays vs. the racing planes. This seems to be the trend, and a bit too... More

Lack of participants & vendors. We have been previous box holders. Decided to go this year and get the buzz of aviation. Crowds were very thin this year. I hope next year turns out better for them.
