The Lockheed L-10E Electra was a twin-seat monoplane manufactured by Lockheed Aircraft in the 1930s. As Lockheed’s very first aircraft, the Electra enjoyed commercial success after the banning of commercial single-engine passenger aircraft. Powered by twin air-cooled radial engines, the L-10E can fly at a maximum speed of 202 mph. This aircraft will always be remembered as the aircraft used by Amelia Earhart, the first woman aviator who flew trans-Atlantic. Lockheed Aircraft produced many variants of Model 10 Electra for both civilian and military use, with a total of 149 units built since its introduction in 1935.
