Default Phil Air Force F-86 with Bob Hoover

Bob Hoover performing low level aerobatics in a Philippine Air Force F-86 at Clark Air Base back in 1961.

The last time I was able to sit down and visit with Bob, I asked him about this film. Bob said he was there at Clark AB as a North American Rep. The PAF asked him to fly and brought out a nicely polished F-86. When Bob preflighted the aircraft, he found several problems so he chose another one that was well worn but very mechanically sound.

The following is a ballet of extraordinary airmanship

The gear down, full flap roll at the end is amazing. He is a living legend.
