RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) — Two pilots are dead after two planes crashed upon landing during the T-6 Class – Gold Race at the National Championship Air Races at the Reno Stead Airport on Sunday afternoon.

According the Federal Aviation Administration, a single-engine North American T-6G and a single-engine North American AT-6B collided in mid-air at about 2:45 p.m. on Sept. 17.

The Reno Air Racing Association identified the pilots as Nick Macy and Chris Rushing. Macy piloted Six-Cat and Rushing flew Baron’s Revenge. Both were Gold winners in the T-6 Class.

There are two different scenes in the neighborhood west of the airport. There’s an active scene in the area of Coyote Run Court and another off Osage Road and Greyhawk.

The Reno Air Racing Association said no civilians were hurt in the crash.

All remaining races for the final National Championship Air Races have been cancelled.

Sunday marked the final day in Reno air race history after nearly six decades. The decision was made earlier this year due to public safety concerns and development in the area.

On the final day of the races in 2022, Aaron Hogue of Paso Robles, California was killed when his L-29 Super Delfin crashed on lap 3 of 6 during the Jet Gold race.

The National Transportation Safety Board has taken over the investigation.
