Kelly’s Heroes: Lockheed’s Five Finest Airplanes

Recommended Posts

Not sure I'd have included the P-80 and the F-104, but the C-130 should certainly be in a list of Lockheed's finest.  It doesn't qualify as one of Kelley's Heroes, however, since he wasn't the designer and wasn't associated with it.  He once wrote a letter to the President of Lockheed virtually begging him not to produce the C-130 because he feared it would bankrupt the company.  Kelley was a smart guy, but like everyone else. he wasn't incapable of being wrong.

By the way, saw a F-104 in flight this week, probably out of the warbird museum at Titusville FL (KTIX), near where we were.
