Designed and built by Lockheed for American Airlines, the L-188 Electra first flew on December 6, 1957. The L-188 was the first turboprop airliner produced in the United States, with standard seating for 66 to 88 passengers. Powered by four Allison 501D-13 turboprops, the aircraft performed nearly as well as contemporary turbojets but cost less to operate. Unfortunately, two fatal accidents quickly eroded faith in the type and led to early cancelation of production. Electras were most infamously flown by the Argentine Navy, who used them to dispose of political prisoners over the Rio de La Plata.

The GeminiJets "Gemini 200" range presents highly-detailed, ready-made diecast models of civilian and military aircraft in 1:200 scale. Prized by collectors worldwide, Gemini define the benchmark by which other 1:200 aircraft brands are judged. GeminiJets "Gemini 200" diecast airplanes feature:

  • Diecast metal construction, including wings and tail surfaces.
  • Realistic panel lines, antennas, access panels and surface details.
  • Pad printed markings and placards that won't fade or peel like decals.
  • Permanently extended metal landing gear with rolling rubber tires.
  • Presentation stand to display the aircraft "in flight".
