A presentation of “Robert Goebel – Mustang Ace” is available for interested groups in the Dallas metroplex and Los Angeles areas, as well as other locations by arrangement.
McKinney, TX resident Bob Goebel Jr., a retired law enforcement officer from California, provides a personal account of his father’s journey from teenaged newspaper boy to decorated fighter pilot, author and lecturer. A highlight of the presentation is exclusive video footage of the tribute P-51 “Flying Dutchman” narrated by the ace.
This presentation is appropriate for all ages, and fans of warbirds or aviation history will not want to miss this opportunity.

“White Four: The Messerschmitt that Helped the Allies and Inspired a Young American Fighter Pilot”
Bob Goebel Jr. describes the incredible history of this Bf-109E:
- built in 1939 in a factory run by the Nazi SS
- assigned to a German ace
- brought down in 1941 during the Battle of Britain
- sent on tour of U.S. and Canada to raise funds for the war effort
- displayed in downtown Racine, WI., where it provided inspiration for a young Bob Goebel, a new Army Air Corps recruit and future double ace
- after the war, suffering the indignity of a junk yard in Canada
- recovered and restored to its former glory as an exhibit at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, England
