Lockheed L-188A N5001K was manufactured as c/n 1035 and was the first Electra delivered to National Airlines. The aircraft was ordered on December 5, 1955 and was delivered on April 1, 1959 as number 51 in the fleet. On December 17 1968 the aircraft was sold to Pan Aero International Corp and stored until September 27 1969 when it was sold to Hartz Industries who leased it to Harvard Industries until late 1971. The aircraft was sold and leased several more times ending up in Guyana.

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.
