One of a series of 13 pre-production aircraft built. This photo was taken by John Mitchell in November 1945, when he was still in the service. That's how I knew about Ontario (today's Chino, not Ontario International), but I didn't get there myself until May 1946 and they were gone by then.

Photographed from an AF Reserve AT-6C over the Bay near Hamilton Field. This is one of my favorite aerial shots as I love the SF Bay Area fog. The former ferry terminal and railroad in Sausalito are visible at the lower center of the photo. The southern tip of Harbor Point is visible beneath the tail, and Mt. Tamalpais rising above the fog.

This P-61 was donated to the National Air Museum (as it was then known) as early as 1950, after five years of test work. However, NACA soon asked to borrow it for high-altitude experimental work. After about 50 flights as a mothership, dropping recoverable swept-wing test bodies, it was returned in 1954 to museum storage. Some 52 years later, it was unveiled for display in original test markings
