Electra Flying

The Lockheed 10 Electra
in New Zealand and the Pioneering of the Main Trunk Air Service.

Richard J. Waugh


The latest book from noted New Zealand aviation historian Richard Waugh is now available. Co-authored by Electra specialist, David Phillips, ELECTRA FLYING contains probably the best selection of period Lockheed 10 Electra photographs and stories yet published. Also included is a list of all surviving Lockheed 10 Electras as at August 1998.

The book tells the comprehensive story of the eight examples flown in New Zealand 1937-1959 and the 1998 arrival of a further example from Alaska for restoration to airworthy condition. ELECTRA FLYING is highly recommended to anyone with an interest in classic Lockheeds.
