Produced in 1934, the L-10 Electra was the first all-metal, twin-engine transport monoplane developed by the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation. It was originally designed as an economical airliner with high performance and multi-engine reliability that would compete with the Boeing 247 and Douglas DC-2. The L-10 could carry ten passengers and a crew of two. It was in service throughout the continental United States, Alaska, Mexico, Central America and South America. The name Electra came from a star in the Pleiades. Wind tunnel work on the Electra was undertaken at the University of Michigan. Much of the work was performed by a student assistant, Clarence Johnson. He suggested two changes be made to the design: changing the single tail to double tails, which would later become a Lockheed trademark, and deleting oversized wing fillets. Both of these suggestions were incorporated into production aircraft.
