Distinctive by its odd-shaped windows, two square windows surrounding a rectangular passenger window on each side and a horizontal tail plane that doesn't extend beyond its vertical fins, the C-45 saw extensive service during WWII.

Great plane, the Twin Beech. One of many stars in the film 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World'.

From IMDB:
"Trivia: The billboard that the twin-engine Beechcraft flies through was made of thin balsa wood, except for a thicker frame for support. Stunt pilot Frank Tallman had to fly the aircraft directly through the center of the billboard or the thicker frame would shear off a wing. Since the shattered wood would clog and stop both engines, the billboard was built just off the end of the runway at the Chino (CA) airport. After flying through the billboard, Tallman simply lowered the landing gear and safely touched down on the runway."
