His pouring tea trick is the ultimate of coordination and a smooth stick.

Keep in mind the glass is just sitting there - it is not secured in place.



Hmm... Video looks washed out when I view it.

Here's the link if you're having trouble with it:

Use to love seeing him at airshows. Saw both his Mustang and his Aero Commander routines.

Bob Hoover taught Chuck Yeager everything about being a badass. Well- almost.
Nobody has flown a plane like Bob can, and nobody will. For two reasons-
1. Bob don't give a fuck because he is a fucking badass.
2. Bob knows what a plane can and can not do.



How big of a fucking badass is Bob? The motherfucker stole an FW 190 to escape Germany. That's fucking right- he got shot down over Germany in WWII, taken prisoner, and to escape he jumped in a fucking German fighter plane he'd never flown before (ironically, the one that shot him down), said FU Germany, and flew the fuck out of captivity.

Bob fucking Hoover- the honey badger of aviation.

I remember reading about him junking out some guy's T-28 about a decade ago.He set it down on a beach and wrote the thing off.The owner goes "oh well,I know he can't afford to replace it but it's Bob Hoover".

He's probably the best American pilot who has ever lived,he's lived through some serious history.

Met him worked on his plane. One hell of a man. And hearing his stories from him is something Ill never forget.

I missed him at NBAA this month. Would have like to shake his hand and get my picture taken with him!

Seeing him fly was always one of the highlights of the EAA when I was a kid. That guys puts on a great show.

Who's the third guy in the picture with Hoov and Yeager?

Bob Hoover is an awesome man. He can wring a plane out.

Here's another Bob doing a tribute to Bob Hoover.

Saw both his Mustang and his Aero Commander routines, many times.

Hoover almost ran over me in a vehicle he was driving on the tarmac at Sun & Fun a few years ago.

His balls must swim every time he takes a shit.

And one hell of a fighter pilot.

I've seen him fly several times and it was amazing !

He is a National Treasure that almost no one outside of aviation knows about.
