“Flying the Feathered Edge: The Bob Hoover Project” will be at the center of a national Veteran’s Day event.
The film, which shares the story of one of the nation’s most revered veterans, aviator Bob Hoover, will be shown in all 50 states on Nov. 11. Tickets are available currently through the Bob Hoover Project website and movie theater host, Tugg until Nov. 1 but are expected to sell out, according to the event’s organizers.
During the film Bob Hoover shares some of his World War II experience, including the time he was shot down off the coast of southern France and taken prisoner only to escape 16 months later by stealing a German Fw 190 and flying to safety.
Hoover’s personal stories are shared along with conversations with actor and pilot Harrison Ford and airshow legend Sean D. Tucker. Bob Hoover reflects on his remarkable career as an Air Force fighter pilot, experimental test pilot, and airshow pilot in the film.
The film also includes appearances by Neil Armstrong, Clay Lacy, Dick and Burt Rutan, Carroll Shelby and other experts in the aerospace field.
The national Veteran’s Day campaign is one of many opportunities that filmmaker Kim Furst has participated in over the past year in an effort to highlight Hoover’s remarkable career and inspire a new generation of aviators.
“Bob Hoover’s legacy has inspired me personally and my hope is that in sharing his story we will see a new generation of aviators emerge,” said Furst.
