Produced in 1934, the L-10 Electra was the first all-metal, twin-engine transport monoplane developed by the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation. It was originally designed as an economical airliner with high performance and multi-engine reliability that would compete with the Boeing 247 and Douglas DC-2. Amelia Earhart, an American aviation pioneer and women's rights advocate, flew a modified L-10E on an attempt to make a circumnavigation flight in 1937. During that flight, Earhart disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island.
