    Austin, TX - F1 - Nov. 16-18

    Any of our Texas friends making it to Austin for the F1 race this weekend? At the very least there should be some interesting birds at the airport.

    If my camera wasn't in Dallas, I would be there. Lord knows I'm only a few miles away.

    Saw a couple of Falcons come from TEB to AUS, then to SAT, overflow parking?? This one was well worth the trip!

    This F1 event in Austin is BIGGER than I thought! AUS had 4 pages of GA arrivals listed on Flightaware yesterday alone! I was out yesterday and counted 10 Mexican registered biz-jets in just a 2 hour period. Saw on our news chartered flights were coming here and the people would be bused to Austin for the event.

    As far as N771RS, it should be returning from CRP this afternoon and it is nothing but blue skies today! http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N771RS

    Is it true that a matte finish actually increases drag?

    I would imagine it does. It's more of a porous finish, so there is more area for wind resistance to occur. (I am not a scientist)
