“ I always tried to look sharp.”
“ I created an opportunity.”

These early insights into flying - and life itself - formed a template that Bob Hoover followed throughout a storied career in which he flew more than 300 types of aircraft and met, interacted, and in some cases flew with, a virtual who’s who of aviation’s first century, including Orville Wright, Eddie Rickenbacker, Charles Lindbergh, Jacquelin Cochran, Bud Anderson, Neil Armstrong and Yuri Gagarin.
“The Gift” is Bob Hoover’s story, in Bob Hoover’s words.
