This detailed model shows the typical paint scheme used by American Airlines in the 60's. This aircraft began flying with American on January 13th, 1960. The Lockheed L-188 Electra was first developed in response to a request by American Airlines for a medium-size short-haul airliner for US domestic routes. It's life was short lived by the arrival of faster turbojet-powered airliners.

Lockheed L-188 Electra

Designed and built by Lockheed for American Airlines, the L-188 Electra first flew on December 6, 1957. The L-188 was the first turboprop airliner produced in the United States, with standard seating for 66 to 88 passengers. Powered by four Allison 501D-13 turboprops, the aircraft performed nearly as well as contemporary turbojets but cost less to operate. Unfortunately, two fatal accidents quickly eroded faith in the type and led to early cancelation of production. Electras were most infamously flown by the Argentine Navy, who used them to dispose of political prisoners over the Rio de La Plata.
