Tremendous sight at this disused RAF Comms airfield during the making of the film 'Hanover Street'. The Mitchells were taxiing up to this point for the film cameras then doing a 180, backtrack and round over and over again. The identity of this aircraft, painted as 'Big Bad Bonnie/151863', is also quoted by some as 108-34535 working on its original USAAF serial of 44-30210, but it is generally held that 108-33485 is correct. After being allocated to the March Field Museum, the aircraft found its way to Chino where it has been undergoing an extended restoration since the early '90s
