LiveAirShowTV has debuted Part 2 of its 2010 Reno Air Races Overview video on its YouTube channel. An expanded look at what happened on Saturday and Sunday of race week, there are several interviews that you will only see at LiveAirShowTV, according to producers, including interviews with Patty Wagstaff, Clay Lacy and several of the racers just minutes after they landed.
“We were in the right places this year to get the story from the key players at Reno,” said LiveAirShowTV President Jeff Lee. “Our team really worked to get in position for the best coverage at Stead Field.”
“The most terrifying moment was when Super Sport pilot George Giboney called a mayday and headed for runway 26, and straight at our camera position,” Lee continued. “We were standing at the back of the Jet class planes on the ramp, and George was coming down fast and pointed in our direction. Race fans may have seen a series of stills, or shaky video from the grandstands. We were about 100 yards from him and caught the entire incident.”
“The Reno Air Racing Association has given us clearance to show the entire clip and fans will see it both in real time, and slow-motion,” he added. “In addition to the definitive video of the mishap, we have the only broadcast interview with George Giboney after being released from the medical facility inside the Thunder Mustang Hangar. Chief Warrant Officer 2 Bryan Lee, son of Jeff Lee, showed the clip to George on our camera and he was amazed at how it happened. He told Bryan that everyone should see this clip to see how the airframe did its job.”
