D.Hagedorn - Latin Mitchells (1)
XC-BIV 'Cuauhtemoc', known to have served the President of Mexico and his staff, at Fort Worth, Texas, in August 1958.
FAM B-25J BMM-3501 at Guatemala City's La Aurora airfield, 1946 or 1947. Note rocket rail stubs under the starboard wing.
Photos of Mexico's trio of B-25Js are extremely rare. This view of BM 3503, the final example, is believed to represent the definitive markings used by the FAM.
TB-25N XB-DAD appearing to be essentially stock. Nothing further is known about the use or fate of this aircraft.
Apparently built as a B-25J, XB-GAR is another mysterious Mexican civil-registered Mitchell, shown here in its first known Mexican colour scheme.
XB-GAR again, this time in a snazzy colour scheme, and after having rather extensive damage to the faired-over nose glazing.
