N9168J, a Piper Cherokee, is making a valiant effort to keep up, but it is losing the race with Southwest's N477WN as both aircraft take off from KRNO's parallel runways simultaneously at 6:50 AM. The Southwest B737, seen here as the wheels are being tucked into the wells, was departing on a Reno-Chicago (RNO-MDW) run. The Piper pilot was enjoying some local-area flying time.
