Air Canada's Lockheed 10-A Takes To The Skies

Tour Marks The Airline's 80th Anniversary

In honor of Air Canada's 80th anniversary, Air Canada's Lockheed 10A vintage aircraft is taking to the skies across Canada. After taking off last Friday from Vancouver, BC, the L-10A made overnight stops as well as fuel stops at airports across Canada, and will be on public display at the Royal Aviation Museum in Winnipeg on September 13 and 14.

As part of the tour, the vintage 10-seat aircraft will overnight in Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Halifax. The plane may also make a fuel stop in your community. Look out Calgary, Sudbury, Quebec City, and possibly more! Aviation enthusiasts may track the aircraft's movements by its registration, CF-TCC, and look out for the silver aircraft in the skies as follows:

  • This week: Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario
  • Week of September 23: Ontario, Quebec, Maritimes, and returns to Manitoba.

The Lockheed L-10A Electra was designed in the mid-1930s by the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation, to compete against the Boeing 247 and the Douglas DC?2. This was Lockheed's first all?metal twin engine aircraft design, and was first flown on February 23rd, 1934.

Although the aircraft was operated by many commercial airlines in the 1930s, the Lockheed Electra was made most famous by aviatrix Amelia Earhart, who in 1937, disappeared in her L-10E Electra while attempting an around-the-world flight. The only difference between the two models is that the L-10E was equipped with larger, more powerful Pratt & Whitney R1340 engines.
