The Lockheed Model 10 Electra is an American twin-engined,all-metal monoplane airliner developed by the Lockheed AircraftCorporation in the 1930s to compete with the Boeing 247 and DouglasDC-2. The type gained considerable fame as one was flown by AmeliaEarhart on her ill-fated around-the-world expedition in 1937.
Many Electras and their design descendants (the Model 12 ElectraJunior and Model 14 Super Electra) were pressed into military serviceduring World War II, for instance the USAAF's C-36. By the end of thewar, the Electra design was obsolete, although many smaller airlinesand charter services continued to operate Electras into the 1970s.
