The first day of the 2017 Reno Air Races (aka: National Championship Air Races) started in spectacular fashion this morning when the Texas Flying Legends Museum personnel positioned their aircraft on the ramp for a sunrise photo op. This shot captures their Goodyear FG-1D Corsair (N209TW / NX209TW) from behind as the sun is coming up over Reno Stead Airport.
