For the fifth year in a row, a Hawker Beechcraft Premier IA will perform fly-by demonstrations at this year's Reno National Championship Air Races and Air Show in Reno, Nevada. The racing started Wednesday and continues through this weekend, ending Sept. 20. Astronaut Robert "Hoot" Gibson will fly the Premier IA on its demonstration passes. Hawker Beechcraft also has a King Air B200GT and a Bonanza G36 on display at Reno-Stead Airport.
