Gates Learstar


In 1953, Gordon Israel signed on with William Lear to redesign the Lockheed Lodestar into the Learstar executive transport. When the Learstar was finished, it was 52 knots faster than the stock Lockheed, and Lear eventually sold 72 of the big long-range twins, one of them going to the Krupps of Germany on a delivery flight that went from Santa Monica to Dosseldorf, Germany with only one stop, at Frobisher.
