Day three and the airplane is just about ready for test flights! The team has been hard at work completing the final touches. Kirby’s time was spent in photography sessions and green screen moving images. Check out these behind-the-scene photos!
Day One was a success! While it was great to be reunited with friends and fellow competitors, we spent the majority of the day assembling the race plane. Just a few more steps and it should be ready for test flights! Kirby made it to Abu Dhabi safe and sound this evening, and we turned in to bed shortly thereafter to prepare for another busy day tomorrow!!
Kirby and the rest of Team Chambliss are either on their way or already in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates! The season has officially begun, with Abu Dhabi hosting the first Red Bull Air Race in a series of eight for 2015. The Team will be globetrotting again this year with inaugural races in Chiba, Japan and Sochi, Russia. The two U.S stops will be Ft. Worth on September 26-27 and Las Vegas on October 17-18. All eight stops will be shown on FOX Sports 1, with the first race airing on Monday March 2 sat 9:00pm Eastern Time!
