Lockheed S-1

locks-1

The original Lockheed Company built the moulded-plywood monocoque fuselage S-1 sports plane in 1916. Far ahead of its day, it could not compete with cheap war-surplus aircraft, and the company suspended manufacture in 1920.

A commercial flop in spite of its innovative monocoque fuselage and folding wings.
