Lockheed L-10 Electra

Dorothy Duckinsie, Invention / Things Historian

Let’s talk airplanes!  Amelia Earhart flew the Lockheed L-10 Electra.  The L-10 was a twin engine monoplane.  “A what?” Okay, that means it had two engines and only one wing surface.  You may have seen a bi-plane with two wings on top of eachother.  The monoplane is just like a lot of planes you see today.  The L-10 was completely made of metal.  It had a double tail.  Pretty cool.  Earhart’s plane was a special enhanced version of the plane.
