    I met him at an airshow a number of years ago. What a nice, classy guy. And an incredible pilot.

    Thanks for posting that, Robin. Wouldn't it be nice if someone would make a movie about Hoover? One of the greatest American heroes ever and outside the aviation community most people have never heard of him.

    Nice video. Yeager should have learned some people skills from him.

    I had the pleasure of seeing Bob coming straight down at me :alex: in the Shrike when I was in the infield at one of the Reading Airshows.

    He is unbelievable as to what he can do with an airplane !
