Insight: Reno Air Races / "America's Heartland" / Rufus Buck Gang / Kushman by the Bottle


 
 
Reno Air Races The national Reno Air Races begin Wednesday and memories are vivid from one year ago when pilot Jimmie Leeward lost control of his plane, crashing into the ground, killing himself, 10 spectators and injuring more than 70 others. But changes have been made in the year since to better protect spectators and pilots. We'll talk with president and CEO of the Reno Air Racing Association, Mike Houghton, and championship-winning pilot John Parker.
