Albuquerque pilot breaks records


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It looks like an Albuquerque pilot is breaking records.

On Saturday, Jon Sharp beat an air speed record for planes that weigh less than 2,300 pounds.

He flew 420 miles an hour. The previous record was 356 miles an hour.

But Sharp isn’t done setting records. Monday morning, he set a record speed of 407 miles an hour on a 15-kilometer course. The old record was 376.2.

On Tuesday, he will make a run at a 100 kilometer record. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
