On October 25th, 2016 Bob Hoover slipped the mortal bounds of earth and embarked on his last, and greatest flight. He was 94 years old.
To simply call him one of the greatest airplane pilots who ever lived would be a colossal understatement. He was a bonafide legend - combat fighter pilot of World War II and Korea, renowned test pilot and famed aerobatic performer. Most important of all he was a true gentleman, and gentle soul.
