Description

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.

Lockheed 12s have appeared in movies as stand-ins for the Electra 10E used by Amelia Earhart in her round-the-world flight attempt. Two played this role in the NBC 1976 TV miniseries Amelia Earhart, and another did so in the 2009 movie Amelia.
