Who knew that brothers Malcolm and Allan Loughead would found such an influ-ential and important aircraft design and manufacturing company? The com-pany\’s first aircraft, the Model G, made its first flight in San Francisco on June 15, 1913. Later, in 1926, the company name was changed to Lockheed. His-tory defined the rest. Without the likes of Clarence \»Kelly\» Johnson, Hal Hib-bard, and other aeronautical geniuses at Lockheed, history-shaping aircraft such as the Lightning, Constellation, and P-80 would never have been produced. Leading-edge technology and common sense management styles were Lock-heed trademarks established during World War II and continued today. This business acumen would propel the company, and its legendary Skunk Works division, to produce such clas-sics as the F-104 Starfighter, the U-2/TR-1, the SR-71, and the F-117A.
