The first B-25 Mitchell's were built at North American's Inglewood California plant
Later aircraft were built in Kansas City. Photo shows vertical and horizontal tail assembly being installed.

My father, William Litchfield, assembled the B25 bombers at the Fairfax plant in KCK during WWII. He installed hydraulic systems.
