A little blast from the past...

A B-25 bomber being moved to the apron for final inspection and fly-off from the North American factory in Kansas City during WWII. Some sources indicate that all the 75mm cannon-armed B-25s were built in Kansas City.

That factory still exists, in a sense. It's now a GM assembly plant. After the war, GM bought it and produced cars and the F-84F fighter there. In the pic below, the new plant obscures the original Fairfax airport. When production was really humming during WWII, they were also barging aircraft across the river and flying them out of downtown airport...
