February 2014, at the entrance to Paramount Theatre in Hollywood CA. Hoover was honored in an event attended by close to 500 people, including aviation executives & celebrities to view the premier of "Perfecting Flight: Bob Hoover" — a documentary of Hoover's accomplishments. A fiberglass replica of Hoover's P-51 "Ole Yeller" acted as centerpiece of the event.
