    Default Flying the Feathered Edge

    The Bob Hoover Project is an independent documentary about Hoover's seven decade career as an aviator. The film also features a notable cast including Harrison Ford, Dick and Burt Rutan, Carroll Shelby, Gene Cernan, Medal of Honor Recipient Col. Bud Day, Clay Lacy, General Jack Dailey, and Sean D. Tucker.

    Hoover approved the film January 2014, with the words "The film captures my life story in an authentic and accurate way. I don't know how it could have been done any better." A former airshow and Air Force test pilot, his accomplishments include escaping a WWII prison camp by stealing a German FW-190 and later flying spotter for Chuck Yeager when the Bell X-1 became the first supersonic airplane.

    No time now, but I'll watch it when I get home from work tonight.
    *Stealing* a Focke-Wuif 190? You must have a real gift for aviation to be able literally to fly for your life in a plane whose cockpit you've never been in before...
    Not to mention balls of titanium.
