I thought the moral was "don't go to an airshow without an air
conditioned motor home!"


That's a pretty good rule, too!

I was fortunate enough to see Bob fly two different times...... and the other was at
Williamsport, PA in probably the mid 80s.


I was at that airshow, too! IPT is less than an hour by PA-28 from
here.

I watched him at Burke Lakefront. He was flying an Aero Commander.
The energy management was impressive...

The show I was had had an F-14 that blew a tire on take-off and had to
abort his routine and head back to Philly. Does that sound familiar
also? If so, it must have been the same show.

No, I don't remember that, Mat. Either my senility is worse than I
thought, or I must have been there another year. The IPT air show was
an annual, or almost annual, affair in those days, as I recall.

I remember that someone flew a glider acro routine before Bob came
up. Very nice. First time seeing that.


That might have been Manfred Radius, if I got the name right. He did
his act to music. He performed ast OSH at least once, too.

I assume there are tapes - I'd like one if anyone knows where.


I assume you mean tapes of Bob Hoover's act. One good source to try
would be Rockwell International, his sponsor. Write or phone their
public relations department.

Annual or maybe biennial, I'm not sure either.
