Lockheed 5B Vega

Introduced in 1927, the Vega was the first product of Allan Loughead’s Lockheed Aircraft Company and its designer Jack Northrop. It sported a cantilever (internal braced) one-piece spruce wing and a spruce veneer monocoque fuselage, which increase overall strength and reduced weight.

Amelia Earhart bought this Vega in 1930.
