So it was all over the news, that a famous actor had a car wreck in Italy, and not to be calloused, but normally such a headline wouldn't catch my eye, but it mentioned something about a Catch-22 Miniseries being filmed in Italy.
So do we know if any WWII aircraft are being flown and filmed in Italy for this?

Cool. I just went Googling for it myself and found your link just before checking back in here.

Both of the B-25's, still in their film colors, left Duxford today heading back across the Atlantic having completed the filming in Sardinia last week or so. Photos of them arriving at Duxford on Monday and leaving today have been posted to this thread on the Key forum: https://forum.keypublishing.com/showthr ... 018/page33

With the temporary film paint, they really went to town with faux paint chips, dark exhaust stains and faded-looking/blotchy paint to make them really look rough/well weathered.
