One of my heroes is named Bob Hoover. I would love him if only for his way of making the FAA look like the fools they usually are, but also genuinely admire his undisputed record of superb flying ability.
This is Bob. He is now 90 years old.
The reason he is on my mind today is the article in this link from a local newspaper. For those who choose not to click it, it states that during an inflight emergency, someone had the presence of mind to call him and ask him for help.
Which he gave.
