John Ward in California owns “Old Glory, ” serial number 44-28938, a beautifully polished, natural finish B-25J.

This incredible Mitchell has had a long career over its lifetime, ranging from Army Air Force bomber in WWII in the Mediterranean, to civilian fire bomber and tanker, to suffering a forced landing and being placed in storage, to another complete restoration, and finally to back in the air in its current military configuration.
