This collection consists of two images of a Lockheed aircraft. The first is an in-flight view of Lockheed Model 2D Vega (A/C No. N965Y) in the red and white livery of Varney Speed Lines, Inc (also marked "Now Continental Airlines") most likely during the aircraft's national publicity tour in 1964. The second was taken at Lockheed Air Terminal in Burbank, California circa the early 1940s and shows a Lockheed P-38 Lightning and a Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VA (A/C No. W3119) sitting nose to nose on the runway. Both images are color. There are 4 by 5 inch color transparencies of each image, as well as two prints of each image which measure 20 by 16 inches and are mounted on black display board.
