That's an awsome picture. I don't remember who took it, but it was taken I think at Irvine. They backed the boat into the water on the trailer at night and fired it up for the pic. I have an original 11X13 of it and you can just see the tongue of the trailer. The cover is Billy Henderson in Going Places, but the Mo Churchman drove the boat when it went 176.
I grew up with BFJ's and watched that run at Firebird and it was truly amazing. I have never seen a jet run that hard and may never again.
