Almost 10,000 B-25 medium bombers were built in World War II, and there are probably more B-25s still flying today than any other type of bomber from the war. The Planes of Fame Museum’s B-25J was built in Kansas City, Kansas, a plant that opened when the North American plant in Inglewood, California, building the bombers and P-51 Mustang fighters, had reached its capacity.
