1936 Lockheed Model 12 Electra Junior The Lockheed Model 12 was a six-passenger all-metal twin-engine transport aircraft of the late 1930s.

About 130 Model 12s were built at Lockheed’s Burbank plant. One of the most exotic uses of the type was on clandestine activities in […]

My intuition had guided me down this valley and I knew I had to get closer. As I approached the […]

Sea levels are rising and oceans are becoming warmer. Longer, more intense droughts threaten crops, wildlife, and freshwater supplies. Our planet’s diversity of life and the future of our generations are at risk from […]
