Today is day 24 of @kjdphoto1971's #0318planes challenge! The theme is "The Next Generation."
Not my best photo, but one with a lot of meaning. This is a tribute flight flown at #OSH17 to honor Bob Hoover, a legendary aviator and man known as the "Pilot's Pilot." Hoover was one of, if not the most, recognizable name in aviation, most well known for his performance in a Shrike Commander. Hoover was an inspiration to many young men and women, myself included, and thus is responsible for creating much of the next generation of pilots.
