Warbird Radio Presents – The Robert “Punchy” Powell Story

WARBIRD RADIO – Robert “Punchy” Powell flew P-51’s and P-47’s in WWII with the famous 352nd Fighter Group in Bodney, Norfolk.  The Nazi’s nicknamed the 352nd The Blue Nosed Bastards because of their distinct blue nose paint jobs…and their pilot’s overwhelming accuracy.

Punchy fills us in on what it was like to fly the Mustang during D-Day and much more.  His story is one you’ll definitely want to listen to over and over again.  Enjoy it this Friday from our archive.
