"Broken Propeller" shines a spotlight on the humanity and power of Reno's loving spirit. what happened that day at the Air Races will haunt us for the rest of our days. But this documentary shares the lessons of that tragedy, and the thanks we give to First Responders and Good Samaritans alike. I hope you enjoy this powerful and important piece of history - Mayor Hillary Shieve (Reno) REVIEW: "I just finished watching this documentary. Was it hard to watch? Yes. but, the stories of the first responders - from the pros to walking-wounded fellow fans - to the ambulance crews to the trauma doctors and nurses to the physical and mental therapists helping both the wounded AND their care givers long after the event are gut-wrenching but so very admirable. The incredible (very) extended behind-the-scenes Reno family members who respond to such a disaster is something most people probably do not think about. The story of the family that is the focus of the documentary is heartbreaking but they way they are handling their fate is heartwarming and sets the standard for other." Steve Hill Crew Chief, Nemesis Air Racing
