This year’s absence of biplanes at the Reno Air Races is undeniably disappointing for aviation enthusiasts and photography enthusiasts alike. Due to an unfortunate lawsuit, the thrilling spectacle of biplane class racing has been put on hold, leaving a void in the excitement that these aircraft bring to the event. The roar of engines, the daring maneuvers, and the sheer adrenaline rush of biplane racing will be sorely missed, casting a shadow over what would have otherwise been an unforgettable air racing experience.
