Bob Hoover wins Wright trophy
According to author Robert Goyer: Like everyone else, I had assumed that Bob Hoover was already a Wright Brothers Memorial award winner. Now we can say that he really is. The National Aeronautic Association's selection committee, of which the author is a member, voted Bob Hoover the winner for 2014. Hoover's story is legend. A WWII fighter pilot, he was shot down, captured and imprisoned for 18 months in a German concentration camp before escaping and flying off in a German Focke-Wulf fighter, which he successfully piloted to freedom.
