B-25J-35-NC Mitchell XB-HEY
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
when I shot this photograph at Long Beach in 1968 (the movie was shot
of the border).
XB-HEY was deliberately burned for a scene in the movie. Its remains
in 1969 at Guernas Airfield, Mexico.
