CO-SIGNED BY BOB HOOVER! This is the second print Sam has produced that features a Bob Hoover airplane and signature. The first starred Bob’s Shrike Commander; this one immortalizes Bob’s Spitfire. On February 9, 1944, future aviation legend Bob Hoover was flying his supermarine Spitfire Mk. Vc. He and his four-plane-formation were charged with search and destroy, attacking enemy ships and shooting up trains along the French and Italian coasts, from Cannes to Genoa. The moment captured by “Hoover’s Fighting Spitfire” is shortly before Bob was shot down and captured. (Don’t worry, he escaped in an amazing feat of bravery and daring!)
