He was a legend.
To hear the stories of R.A. “Bob” Hoover’s life, one might think they were reading a movie script. His escape from a German POW camp, his role on the X-1 team that broke the sound barrier, his career as a test pilot for North American Aviation, his breathtaking air show routines. Any one story is interesting enough, but they’re all details in the life of one man.
He was a gentleman. Read more about Bob's life in the January 2017 issue of EAA Sport Aviation magazine.
