In this all colour photo book, David G. Powers provides a comprehensive look at the Lockheed L-188 Electra. It follows the Electra’s history from its preliminary concept through development and initial flight.
Airline operators of the Lockheed Electra are examined in detail, in addition to the second hand operators. A chapter is devoted to the early accident investigations and how Lockheed worked through the problem to come up with a fix that allowed the aircraft to eventually enjoy a long and prosperous career.
Additional chapters examine Electra cargo variants, submarine hunters, research platforms and fire bombers. Electra hull losses are individually reviewed along with a complete productin list. Supplemented with over 300 photos, many in colour, charts and diagrams, this volume provides a fascinating look at one of America’s truly great airliners.
