    Did Hoover fly a Jet Commander airshow? I did see him fly the P-51, the F-86 and the Aero Commander Shrike.

    I’m not familiar with that. Please explain.

    Thanks,

    I never seen him in anything but the Shike but I looked for a refferance and found one...

    "I remember a show I co-announced in Michigan, where Bob performed in both the Shrike Aero Commander and Jet Commander. Following Bob’s performance on Sunday, he took off in the Jet Commander and flew back to Los Angeles, while his personal announcer, Jimmie Driskell, followed behind in the Shrike Commander." https://midwestflyer.com/?p=10314

    I guess the civilian equivelant of the j-85 makes to much noise for some law they passed back when. Later versions had tfe731's and probably passed muster.

    The author may have been confused. Hoover flew a Saberliner in an airshow routine but I don't recall any airshow flying in a Jet Commander.

    "I'd love to see this one licensed in the experimental-exibition category and performing Mr Hoovers routine."
    "I never seen him in anything but the Shike" It was not my intent to establish whether he had flown the jet commander in a routine, but given his afilliation with the company I'd bet he did just cause it was there.
