I would like to hear a sport that's more dangerous. In 2008 three pilots were killed in crashes.
These are highly modified, incredibly fast planes that fly in excess of 500MPH, and fly from 15 to 40 feet off the ground. (That's how fast they fly on the course. These prop-driven airplanes are fast enough to break the speed of sound! )
From 6 to 12 planes fly in any one race at a time and they come within feet of eachother at speeds from 450 to 500 MPH's. There have been dozens of fatal crashes over the years in Reno and Mojave. (Mojave has since been discontinued because no one will insure the event. )
In 2008, one pilot crashed right after takeoff. A woman pilot died after her engine blew and she was attempting an emergency landind. And another pilot was killed when two Formula One planes collided in mid air. The second pilot survived while the other pilot, named Hubler nosed over and flew straight into the ground and disintigrated. (Also, two pylon judges were injured after being hit by the debris. )
As far as injuries, I think bull riding is the worst sport. But I would say that pylon air racing is easily the most deadliest sport in the world.
1. Pylon Air Racing.
2. Free Diving.
3. Bull Riding.
These pilots are crazy!
Shinty is a team sport played with sticks and a ball. Shinty is now played mainly in the Scottish Highlands, and amongst Highland migrants to the big cities of Scotland. similair to hockey but the hard ball can be played in the air like lacrosse! the players wear no protection so often end up with head injuries and the stick can be swung like a baseball bat so often causes injury! players can also physically tackle other players using shoulder barges ect!
