Dear pometablava, here is an artist's impression of the Lockheed L-188 Electra in U.S.A.F MATS livery......

The picture comes from page 95 of the Great Airliners Volume Five "Lockheed 188 Electra" by David G. Powers......

Dear pometablava, here is a semi-military Lockheed Electra that isn't a "project" (so I am off topic). It is c/n 1130 which was a L-188C-08-18 Electra originally ordered by Capital Airlines Inc. but not delivered to them. It was sold to The Ford Motor Company as N181H, but not used. It was then leased to the U S Navy Pacific Missile Range at NAS Point Mugu between 1960 and 1961 to track Agena satellites and direct the C-119 aircraft to pick up the photograph cannisters......

Here's an old model of the Lockheed L-188 Electra in USAF / MATS colors. Does anybody know if this was an unsolicited Lockheed proposal, or was it in response to an actual RFP?

Apart from the proposed Lockheed P-7 LRAACA, with its 2.10m (7ft) increase in wing-span, is anyone aware of any earlier increased wing span proposals to either the L-188 Electra or P-3 Orion?

Thanks in advance

Regards
Pioneer
