Delivered in 1945, this B-25 was assigned to Stateside training duties before retirement in 1959.  Most notably, this aircraft flew in the 1969 movie “Catch 22” as Vestal Virgin.  In 1982 the B-25 was donated to the newly formed American Aeronautical Foundation Museum at Camarillo, CA who has been operating it ever since.  First flown in 1940, more than 9,800 were built. The B-25J was the last factory series production of the B-25. (Number made: 4,318.) There are more than one hundred surviving B-25s scattered over the world, mainly in the United States with about 45 still airworthy. Fuji X-Pro2 w/18-135mm.
