In R. A. “BOB” HOOVER: FLYING THE FEATHERED EDGE, Bob Hoover tells his own story joined by friends and colleagues Harrison Ford, Dick and Burt Rutan, Carroll Shelby, Gene Cernan, and Medal of Honor winner Col. Bud Day, among others.
A legend of the greatest generation, Robert A. “Bob” Hoover is demonstrably the most beloved figure in aviation today. Considered “The Guru” “An Icon” and “A God” by many of his peers, this humble 92 year old has received honorary Doctorates from both the Navy and Air Force Test Pilot schools. Largely unknown outside aviation circles, Bob dreamed of being a fighter pilot but was too tall, with poor eyesight and a bad case of air sickness. With determination and outside the box thinking, this WWII veteran escaped Stalag I by stealing an enemy aircraft and went on to become an accomplished experimental test pilot, participant in breaking the speed of sound and launching the world into the Jet Age.
As of January 2014 this film has locked picture and Bob has signed off for historical accuracy, with two enthusiastic thumbs up. We are in the final stages of scoring, mixing, and polishing this VERY special documentary.
