Analysis of the 2011 Reno Air Races crash of the P-51 Mustang "The Galloping Ghost"

Analysis of the 2011 Reno Air Races crash of the P-51 Mustang "The Galloping Ghost"

My haunting photos of the P-51 Mustang "The Galloping Ghost" disintegrating in the box seats at the Reno Air Races provoked the question "why did this tragedy happen?" I was at the east pylon and initially thought it hit the open ground between the ramp and the Home Pylon because the cloud thrown up looked like sand or dirt. It wasn't until I looked at the photos and saw the gruesome sight.

The NewlyDeads Taco Truck on the road course portion of the race. This remids me of a favorite TV show "Top Gear" when they raced motorhomes.
