PBA Fleet: Lockheed Model 10 Electra

The Lockheed Model 10 Electra is an American twin-engined, all-metal monoplane airliner developed by the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation in the 1930s to compete with the Boeing 247 and Douglas DC-2. The type gained considerable fame as one was flown by Amelia Earhart on her ill-fated around-the-world expedition in 1937. Provincetown-Boston Airline, Inc. was the last commercial passenger operator of this type in the United States.
