Red Bull Air Race, Perth, April 18 2010, and the following morning. Some very exciting racing today, with some unexpected upsets, and a very close finish. The crowds went wild when the final results were announced, as did the web-chat page. For the pilots, it could hardly have been a more perfect day, although the still conditions meant that the smoke make life tricky for us photographers. This difficult course and the crash on Thursday were all transcended today as the pilots brought out their best in a spectacular finish. One of the great things about this competition is that all the pilots are such personable people, and it is a very tight-knit group, even when they are competing against each other. So very different to most sports, where rivalries can become personal. Here, they are all brothers of the airways.
