B-25J 43-28204 “Pacific Princess”

This beautiful and well-maintained aircraft only saw wartime action in the movies (Catch-22, 1941, Pearl Harbor), but more importantly served as a firefighting aircraft in the 1950s. She also had the honor of launching from the deck of the Carl Vinson in 1995 for the 50th anniversary of WWII’s end. Picture taken at Cable Airport in Upland, CA.
