Day 31

"The Air Race Classic is the epicenter of women's air racing. Pilots range in age from 17 to 90 years old. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds including students, teachers, doctors, airline pilots, business owners, professionals and air traffic controllers. Race teams, consisting of at least two women pilots, must fly VFR during daylight hours only and are given four days to make flybys at each en route timing point and then land at the terminus. The race route changes each year, approximately 2,400 statute miles in length. with 8 or 9 timing points.  The race dates for 2017 are June 20th through June 23rd." ~taken from the Air Race Classic website.  This race started in Frederick, MD on June 20th which is Day 31.  I took this photo yesterday of one of the planes taking off.  I just didn't get to post it until tonight.  I love that Frederick has so much going on all the time.
