Lockheed Martin Announces 'Centennial Flight Contest'

Social Media Followers Will Have A Chance To Fly Aboard An Historic Lockheed Super Constellation

Lockheed Martin Corporation is holding a "Centennial Flight Contest" to be held in conjunction with the 2012 Farnborough International Airshow. The contest invites Lockheed Martin's Twitter and Facebook followers to share personal stories related to aviation history for a chance to claim a seat aboard a historic Lockheed Super Constellation flight at Farnborough, United Kingdom, on Tuesday, July 10.

The flight is part of the celebration of Lockheed Martin's 100th anniversary. The aircraft also will be on static display and can be visited at Farnborough for the duration of the airshow, which runs July 9-15, 2012.

To enter the contest, individuals must submit a brief essay (250 words or less) and photo that convey how aviation history influenced their path to becoming an aviation enthusiast, or "AvGeek."  Submissions will be accepted online from June 11, 2012 through June 18, 2012. Five winners will be selected from among the entries by a panel of judges consisting of Lockheed Martin employees and at least one independent judge.

"1912 was a momentous year, with Glenn L. Martin and the Lockheed Brothers founding companies that changed the course of aviation history. To mark our 100th anniversary, we're looking at the innovations and achievements that helped our customers rise to some of the world's most vital challenges," said Lockheed Martin Chairman and CEO Bob Stevens.

"The Constellation embodies that heritage of innovation and exploration, and has served as an inspiration for the aviation community," added Stevens. "We're thrilled to share this special moment of celebration with aviation enthusiasts at Farnborough this year."

The Super Constellation is a heritage Lockheed Martin aircraft, based on the Model 049 Constellation that the Lockheed Company built in the 1940s for military and commercial purposes.  The Constellation, affectionately known as the "Connie," was an industry workhorse for long distance commercial flight routes. It was also the first plane designated Air Force One.

Lockheed Martin is commemorating its Centennial with special events, stories from its history and community service projects, culminating at the Paris Airshow next June.
