RENO, Nev. (AP) — A blue ribbon panel reviewing the deadly air race crash in Reno last year is making a number of safety recommendations. But officials who have read the report say none would prevent the races from continuing as scheduled.

Two officials said Monday that several recommendations in the panel's final report call for changes the Reno Air Racing Association already has initiated, including appointing a safety director with the authority to halt races if necessary.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly about the report ahead of its scheduled public release Tuesday.

The officials say none of the recommendations run contrary to those made earlier by the National Transportation Safety Board after the crash at the National Championship Air Races killed 11 and injured more than 70.

There was no need to share images (again) from the tragedy that happened last year. That showed poor judgment and insensitivity to anyone who lost a loved one.
