Where is Bob Hoover?

Post by FenderManDan »

Going to Airventure tomorrow. Just wanted to shake a man's hand. Where is he most likely to be found

Sorry I failed to make it this year. Maybe I'll go 2015. I'm mildly remorseful for missing even though I quit flying again.

I'm starting to think about driving miss Shinysideup around a bit to see how bad I am at it. Who knows, that might jar my memory and make me fall in love with flying again.

Bob was at the bar in the Hilton on Sunday night around 10:30 pm he is showing his age but it was good to see him out. He's also speaking at one of the "Warbirds in Review" events on Saturday http://www.eaa.org/eaa/event/Warbirds_i ... B56B34AE5B

I suspect at 92 he must be getting a bit frail for the heat and excitement of a full week of AirVenture.

The AirVenture site says "sorry this presenter will not be presenting this year."

They are doing a private screening of the new documentary about him this year.

I don't know details such as "how private" and "will Mr Hoover be present?"
