North American B-25J-35-NC  Mitchell  XB-HEY         (c/n  108-47695)


                                              This was one of eighteen Mitchells used in the motion film "Catch-22".  It was the former USAF
                                              45-8843 and one of the last B-25s built.  It was originally civilianized as N8091H but had received
                                              Mexican registry when I shot this photograph at Long Beach in 1968 (the movie was shot south
                                              of the border).  XB-HEY was deliberately burned for a scene in the movie. Its remains are buried
                                              in 1969 at Guernas Airfield, Mexico.
