Catch-22 (1970) - B-25 Mitchell take-offs - HD

Iaman is looking for a cabana on the beach in San Carlos, Mexico.
San Carlos, Mexico, is about equidistant from San Diego, El Paso, Cabo San Lucas and Mazatlan
Follow the link to see the airstrip location.
In the course of his musings, he discovers that the aircraft scenes for the movie Catch-22 were filmed there. "Paramount planned to film the Catch-22 aerial sequences for six weeks, but the production required three months to shoot and the bombers flew a total of about 1,500 hours. They would appear on screen for 12 minutes." The film cost $20 million to produce and this was back in 1970 when a dollar was actually worth something. "The Catch 22 airport was constructed from scratch for the movie."
