Captain Bob "Punchy Powell. Punchy was a member of the 352nd Fighter Group during the Second World War.  He flew the P-47, P51 and is one of the few Americans to have flown the Spitfire and as a result is a member of the Spitfire Association.  Bob is currently the Historian of the 352nd.  Bob saw a lot of combat and flew 3 missions over the Normandy beaches on D-Day.  He also flew with Aces Major George Preddy and Colonel John C. Meyer. After the war he became good friends with German Generals Adolf Galland and Gunther Rall.  Sit back and listened to someone who lived the history we read about today.
