Warbird Radio.com - Listen LIVE!

WARBIRD RADIO – On this episode of Warbird Radio Presents we hear the story of EAA’s Timeless Voices of Aviation interview with George Brooks. Mr. Brooks enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Force in 1942 and was called up in March 1943. Classified as a pilot, George learned to fly P-51 Mustangs and was sent overseas where he joined the 382nd Fighter Squadron of the 363rd Fighter Group, 9th Air Force based in France. George flew five combat missions before being shot down during a dawn patrol near Argentan, France on August 13, 1944. Despite an injured arm and leg, he managed to evade capture and made his way to friendly lines. After three weeks of recovery in a British hospital, George found that the 363rd had been converted to a Tactical Reconnaissance Group. After bouncing around for three months he was assigned to the 9th Weather Reconnaissance Squadron flying Mustangs again. He finished the war with 80 weather recon missions.
