There are some that fly an airplane, and there are those who become one with the air and machine. Sad news today. Bob Hoover passed away at the age of 94. A stick and rudder pilot for the ages. I met and got an autograph back in the late 1990s. A class act all the way. Mr. Hoover brought flying to an artistic level. RIP Mr. Hoover, you took to the skies, dazzling and inspiring so many. We mourn his loss, and celebrate a life.
Robert A. “Bob” Hoover (January 24, 1922 - October 25, 2016)
