The hydroplanes of today are almost more plane than hydro. They are thirty feet long, and have 7,000 pound wings that glide over the water with only a minimal amount of contact with the river. Powered by turbine engines capable of nearly 3,000 of horsepower, these boats can reach straightaway speeds of close to 200 miles per hour. Catch them and other event related photos in action below in our gallery.
