Bob Hoover ‘Celebration of Life’ LiveStreaming Program Details Announced
Aero-News Network ‘Proud to Help Remember Bob’ at on Friday, November 18th from 1300-1600 Pacific.
I will be posting a reminder for this live stream in the This Day in Aviation History Collection and will also be shared on Tumblr, Facebook, and Twitter.
Bob Hoover was, to virtually everyone in the aviation world, the “Pilot’s Pilot.” One of aviation’s most celebrated aviators, Hoover pioneered a legendary life as a fighter pilot, test pilot, airshow pilot and aviation figurehead. Whether escaping a German prisoner of war camp in WWII by stealing a German fighter, flying in support of Chuck Yeager’s record-breaking sound-barrier flights, testing dozens of leading edge airplanes (often for the first time) or flying flawlessly thorough hundreds of airshow performances; Hoover’s 94 years were packed with adventure, class, distinction, and a gentlemanly grace heretofore unmatched by any other flyer. The beloved aviator passed away October 25th.
In a fitting tribute to a life well lived and dedicated to aviation, Hoover’s friends are ensuring that those who cannot attend in person will be there in more than spirit by broadcasting the event over the internet.
The Bob Hoover Memorial Celebration scheduled for November 18th, from 1400-1600 Pacific Time, will be webcast live to the aviation community and the rest of the world from Clay Lacy Aviation, in Van Nuys, California. The primary online viewing portal may be accessed at from 1300 PT to 1600 PT, with an hour of preliminary interviews and discussions of the life of Robert A ‘Bob’ Hoover preceding the event that will commence at 1400 PT.  
The Celebration of Life honoring Robert A. “Bob” Hoover will be hosted by Masters of Ceremonies Sean D. Tucker and Danny Clisham.
The Aero-News Network production team webcasting the event welcomes other aviation media and general media wishing to commemorate the life of Mr. Hoover to use video and audio from the event, while instructions for live embedding of the online programs will be posted to as well. Following the event, the entire program will be offered via archived programs and edited excerpts that will be posted to, as well. Plans for a DVD release, in support of Hoover related programs and charities are in the planning stages, as well, with info to follow shortly.  
ANN, Clay Lacy, Sean Tucker, Danny Clisham, and many other persons and organizations are donating their services in support of the event and are honored to help bring this event to the world and commemorate a unique man whose impact on the aviation community will never be forgotten.
