GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- Dozens of pilots took to the skies over Texoma as they took part in a race in their planes over two states.

The wind was blowing pretty strong Saturday morning, but that did not stop a small group of spectators from coming to see planes take off at the North Texas Regional Airport.

Private aircraft pilots competed in a 130-mile race over Denison and Madill. One man from Pottsboro says it was his first time visiting the airport.

"I've seen bunch of planes, both experimental and commercial and just get to go around and see them close and personal and get pictures," says spectator Howard Kamperman.

A crew was also out taking video of the planes for a show on the Discovery Channel. About 40 pilots were vying for trophies and bragging rights in the sixth Texoma 100 air race, organized by the Sport Air Racing League.
