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.
