Junior reporter John Gaines and the RV-6

This airplane is really cool! It's an RV 6 with a huge 6 cylinder engine and a sweet paint job. I'm told the owner races this plane at Reno. I bet it is really fast.

Tomorrow,  I am going to the main flightline to see all the show planes. Tomorrow is also the first afternoon airshow of the week. Many people have told me about a “Wall of Fire” and I can hardly wait to see what it looks like.
