Pipsqueak at the Reno National Air Races
The World’s Fastest L-39
Delaware Warbirds Racing has raced Pipsqueak at the Reno National Air Races since 2005, winning Jet Class Championship in 2005 and 2006.  Flying the World’s Fastest L39, Joe Gano qualified Pipsqueak in 2008 at 502 mph and at 525 mph in 2009.  Joe finished 3rd in 2008, 2009 and 2010, all at speeds of over 500 mph!  After being forced out of the 2011 and 2012 races, for what? Speeding! We are now preparing for the 2013 races.
