Oooops!

This last week we had PRS (pylon racing school), it's the prelude to the air races. Everything went pretty smooth and uneventful until....



a couple jets ran into each other going around the course. The number on the tail was 777

That looks like an expensive fix. Could have been much worse though, at least no one was hurt (right?).

It happened about 20 minutes after I left, definitely an oh s#it moment for both of them. Nobody hurt.

No, he hasn't raced planes in a long time, he got into an argument with the race officials once and swore off the air races after that
