A look at team American Spirit and the 2013 National Championship Air Races in Reno


American Spirit (“Race 5”) finished second in the 2013 Jet Class Gold race. The aircraft was piloted by primary race pilot Rick Vandam. (During the race the announcer once misidentified the pilot as Lee Behel, American Spirit’s backup pilot.)
