It's almost Sept.  Burners are in Reno.
It must be time for the NAE team to go?

Alvord Desert. They are out there getting ready to run. We stopped by the Alvord Desert on the way home from BMST. Very interesting place, in the middle of nowhere.

Live broadcast of a shakedown run at 6 pm PT from the Pegasus site. Broadcast starts at 5:30.

I guess they aren't interested in the debate...

I'm signed up for text alerts, and if I can manage to squeak in a few seconds here and there -- might try to post on the Forum if somebody isn't already doing it.

Could see on the telemetry stream that the car was being towed, but apparently a technical glitch forced them to cancel the test run.

Hey there, girls and boys -- The North American Eagle is up on the Alvord Desert now - and we've got a fly (?!) in the dust to send back stuff if there's much to send back. Stay tuned.

Any word on what the plans are for this week?

Who's driving?

How many wheels fitted (previously there has been talk of running with 3 wheels for FIM and 5 for FIA)?

Any official timers there, or are they self-timing with GPS?

I know last year they used U.S.F.R.A. timing equipment.

WoW!  I just got one heck of a story from Ed Shadle.  Jim Halladay has been staying in touch with me and told me of a farkle last night -- and now Ed's given me the scoop. Ready for this?

The car needed a hydraulic part (steering stuff)that was in the shop back in Stanaway.  Favors were called in and a guy flew from his home base to Stanaway to get the part.  Departed there around 7 pm ETA Alvord around 10.  Now comes the fun:

The pilot's cellphone didn't get the text that gave the Eagle team's GPS coordinates - and pilot error compounded into him landing at Alvord LAKE -- about 10 miles south of Eagle.  Ed described the landing area as one that shouldn't have been used for landing.  Result:  one wadded up airplane, one pilot sitting there when the crew arrived a few hours later.  Pilot was holding - a bag of parts!  Delivery made, pilot safe and sound.

So the parts are now installed on the car and the crew hopes to make some smoke and noise in a while.
