1936 Lockheed Model 12 Electra Junior
The Lockheed Model 12 was a six-passenger all-metal twin-engine transport aircraft of the late 1930s. It first flew June 27, 1936, appropriately taking off at exactly 12:12 a.m. With its small passenger capacity, it found more favor as a corporate executive transport than as the feeder airliner as which it was conceived. 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 Europe by Sidney Cotton, an Australian aerial photographer secretly working for the French and British intelligence agencies, who obtained three Model 12s for high-speed, long-range flights over German air bases and other military sites to photograph them from early 1939 until the start of World War II in Europe in September of that year.

Fujiflex Crystal Archive is a highly specialized and superior photographic material. Fujiflex is a silver halide based polyester that produces exceptionally high quality, high gloss photographic prints that contain vivid colors and remarkable archival properties.
Unlike inkjet printing, printing to Fujiflex Crystal Archive is a specialized process using Chromira LED exposure technology. Photographs are not printed to the Fujiflex polyester material, they are exposed into the silver halide base with red, green and blue LED globes. The exposed Fujiflex is then processed in photographic chemistry to produce archival Digital C type photographic prints that we feel show the true beauty of our photographs.
