A brief history of the aircraft type and the airline is supplied with each model.
In 1954 American Air Lines was in the market for a 75 to 100 passenger aircraft for its
short to medium range domestic routes. In response Lockheed developed the low wing L-
188 Electra powered by four sleek turboprops instead of the usual large radial engines or
jet turbines. The combination of engine and the Hamilton Standard propeller offered a
much more reliable and fuel efficient aircraft that could travel at 375 mph for 2000 miles at
an altitude of 20,000 25,000 feet. When production ended in 1961 there had been 170
Pacific Southwest Airlines (PSA) operated from 1949 1988. In late 1959 PSA started to
take delivery of the Lockheed Electra L-188 to replace their aging DC-4's. The Electra
drastically cut travel times and was exactly what PSA needed to compete with United and
