"The greatest pilot I ever saw" according to Chuck Yeager passed away Tuesday

"Bob Hoover, a pilot who escaped Nazi captivity in a stolen plane, tested supersonic jets with his friend Chuck Yeager, barnstormed the world as a breathtaking stunt performer and became, by wide consensus, an American aviation legend, died on Tuesday in Los Angeles. He was 94."

You can't ask for a higher praise than having Chuck Yeager saying you're the greatest pilot he's ever seen. In case you want a second opinion, Jimmy Doolittle said Hoover was “the greatest stick-and-rudder man that ever lived.”
