Air Canada Celebrates 80 Years

In honour of Air Canada’s 80th anniversary, Air Canada’s Lockheed 10A vintage aircraft is taking to the skies across Canada. The L-10A will be making overnight stops as well as fuel stops at airports across Canada, including the Greater Sudbury Airport. The L-10A will be arriving on September 16th and September 23rd and departing on September 17th and September 24th; however these are tentative dates and subject to change based on the aircraft, weather, etc.

About the Lockheed L-10A Electra
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.
