Throwback Thursday // Lockheed 10 Electra
By: Taking Off
Looks like our 1935 Lockheed 10 Electra is taking a selfie with pilot T.P. “Pre” Ball. Good thing it has long wings!
The Electra was Delta’s first all-metal aircraft and held 10 passengers and 2 pilots. Cabin appointments included hat nets, window curtains, a dome light, reading lamps, ashtrays, drinking water and a lavatory.
With the Lockheed 10, Delta introduced its first onboard meal service box lunches and coffee served by the co-pilot.
