Steve Hinton Jr is going to attempt to beat the current record held by Reno Bearcat Rarebear tomorrow (27th). In the Reno P-51 he usually races, Voodoo. It has had the wing modified among other things & a full paint strip, being finished in a hi gloss white. He acheived 565 mph in a dive with his ather following him down in an F-86.
I would have thought any airspeed record would be more valid if achieved in powered level flight, not just diving the knackers out of something and hoping the wings stay on!?
