Lockheed Air Express.

The Lockheed Air Express was the second aircraft design created by the Lockheed Aircraft Company after its founding in 1927; the type first flew in April 1928. The Air Express was based around the original fuselage of the Vega, but the wing was raised to a parasol configuration above the fuselage and the cockpit was moved behind the wing. The design was a commercial success for the company although only seven were built. 1927 (MCMXXVII) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will take you to calendar). ... The Vega was a six-passenger monoplane built by the Lockheed company starting in 1927. ...

No Air Expresses have survived to the present day.


Lockheed produced 7 aircraft between 1928 and 1931. This info published in the Lockheed Star Vol. 49, No.13, July 1 1982. This issue contains other info pertinent to Lockheed aircraft.
