Description

A Lockheed 10-A "Electra" of the Boston-Maine Airways is shown in Presque Isle. This was the same model plane as was flown by Amelia Earhart.

The photo was taken in August 1940, just before the airfield became an Army Air Base during World War I. A U.S. Army Air Corp Douglas C-47 is in the background.
