In reality this is 43-31171 but is on display at the IWM Duxford to represent B-25J 43-4064 that served with the 488th BS, 340th BG, 12th Air Force in the latter stages of the Second World War from its base in Corsica. This was the BG that formed the inspiration for Joseph Heller's satirical novel Catch-22. Heller served as a bombardier in the 488th Bomb Squadron and had extensive experience flying bombing missions in Mitchells.
The first ever visit of Soviet aircraft to Switzerland, flying in a delegation to negotiate the return of Soviet citizens who were interned in Switzerland during WWII. Built by Douglas Oklahoma the front C-47, US serial 44-76715, was delivered to the Soviet air force as late in the war as April 1945. To civil on 28 April 1945. It seems to have washed out white titles. The other C-47 is CCCP-L960 with what looks like a roughly painted out red star on the tailfin. CCCP-L976 came in the following day.
