This aircraft was the prototype that started it all...the first L-188 ever made. It was first flown on December 6th 1957. At the time Lockheed had already received orders for 144 aircraft. It seemed they were set for a long production run, but they were destined to become second-best to the faster turbojet aircraft.

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.
