Flown by R.A. "Bob" Hoover for 20 years, N500RA is now the most recoognized Shrike Commander in the world. Hoover used his extensive test pilot and fighter pilot skills to become a legendary airshow pilot and brought a simple business aircraft to international attention.
While an Air Force test pilot at Wright Field after World War II, Bob met the beautiful Colleen Humrickhouse. She later said, "The thing that held Bob back was my maiden name. He used to introduce me as Coleen Jones". She became Colleen Hoover and remained so for their 68 years together.
