[Closed] Saturday Night Patterns - Bob Hoover’s Backyard @ KTOA - 162100ZJUN18

Hello everyone! For those that weren’t at the last SNP, here’s the info. Every Saturday night, someone from the ATC Education Group controls an airport, while the rest do touch-and-goes.

This week we will be flying in Bob Hoover’s backyard, Zamparini Field (KTOA). Robert Anderson “Bob” Hoover is a legendary air show pilot, United States Army Air Forces fighter pilot, USAF and civilian test pilot, flight instructor, and aviation record-setter. He used to fly out of there, he has a hangar there where he based his P-51 out of and he lived in Palos Verdes Estates just to the west of the airport in the later portion of his life.

I was inspired to feature this airport after watching this video by FlightChops and I would highly recommended you check out Bob Hoover’s legendary engine-out aerobatics routine, very cool!

Also just a side note, if you’re wondering why @Cbro4 isn’t posting this, he’s a bit under the weather. 🙂
