Boeing 737-700 (N7877H) - This click illustrates why the month of September is the absolute greatest month for every northern Nevada area photographer who enjoys taking pictures of activity occurring in the sky. The dawn-hour Mass Ascension of hot air balloons during the annual Great Reno hot air balloon event, captured in this photo taken last year, heralds the start of two weeks of fantastic airborne activity in Reno and northern Nevada. And in two days, it all begins again. The 2019 Great Reno Balloon Race will be held next weekend, the 2019 Tailhook Convention will be held here again as it always is, and the National Championship Air Races will begin just two days after the hot air balloon event and the Tailhook Convention conclude. The balloon race means the sky will be full of hot air balloons, the Tailhook Convention means there will be US Navy aircraft at RNO, and the Air Races means military statics, military flybys, air show performances, and high speed air racing. And, this year, STOL drag racing too. Charge up those camera batteries, clean those lens, and have plenty of digital cards: September has arrived.

Uwe, what's up? Where have you been, my friend? Did you change your email addy? I sent messages, some with photos. Are you getting them? Don't forget, the email address I use for you and the other aviation contacts is not the OldeCarl address. It is the one that I use to share aviation pics with the aviation photogs who enjoy receiving each other's clicks. Perhaps those emails are getting deleted or are going direct to your trash bin? I'll send one in a few minutes; please watch for it, OK? (Wave)

Nice foto Gary! Didn't know Reno had a hot air balloon event.
Joan Williams
Very cool!
Dwight Hartje
Outstanding capture! It's cool to see that Reno has a ballon festival.
serge LOTH
I didn't know RENO has a Balloon Race (I knew about CHambley France, and Albuquerque) This is a very smart picture Gary (as usual)with a nice landscape. By the way nice looking Southwest 737/700 , I m sad for the US about the 737/800 ;Boeing is a great constructor.5*****

Uwe, I just saw your reply. Will write back. (Wave) Leland ... Hey, it's been a bit of time. How are you doing? The balloon event started yesterday and runs thru Sunday. In past years it was a three-day event but this year it started a day earlier. Totally free to attend. Always fun and the pics come out wonderfully. Joan and Leon ... Thank you very much. (Wave) Dwight .... Keep your super pics coming, my friend. Serge .... There are many opinions regarding the Max 8 mess. All I know is what I read and there are details I will never know, but I do know one thing for certain: many innocent people trusted the Boeing name and reputation and now they are deceased and their relatives are suffering their loss. I'm deeply sad for them. Regarding my picture, thank you again very much, Serge, for your nice compliment. (Big smile)

Super Gary.............

What a wonderful event !!

TY, Ken. The balloon races are quite cool. But I'll tell ya, I still envy your proximity to such an extraordinary aviation event as Oshkosh. True, we have the NCAR here and I am ultra-grateful to be able to attend the races every year, but when I think about Oshkosh and all that I've never seen there, well, just color me green ..... (Both Thumbs Up)

Okay Kermit, er Gary, think of us down here with, white fuselages and the odd gunmetal gray fuselage. Love your pic.
