Other designs out of Lockheed included the F-104 Starfighter (late 1950's), the world's first Mach 2 fighter plane, the Constellation and Super Constellation series of propellor transports, the L-1011 TriStar tri-jet transport and the C-5 Galaxy four-engined jet air transport.

 Lockheed and the Future of Warfare
Lockheed is also building a huge high-altitude airship, 25 times bigger than the Goodyear blimp, intended to help the Pentagon with the unsolved problem of protecting the nation from ballistic missiles.
Lockheed is also the strongest corporate force driving the Pentagon's plans for ''net-centric warfare'': the big idea of fusing military, intelligence and weapons programs through a new military Internet, called the Global Information Grid, to give American soldiers throughout the world an instant picture of the battlefield around them.
Today, Lockheed is building weapons so smart that they can change the world by virtue of their precision, he said; they aim to wage war without the death of innocents, without weapons misfiring, without fatal miscalculation.

The labor crisis began at Lockheed Martin on Feb. 27 when rank-and-file Machinists disregarded the recommendation of their negotiating team and, by a 2-to-1 ratio, rejected a tentative three-year deal that would have raised wages 10 percent and granted $1,500 signing bonuses.
Lockheed says it is bound by the economic terms of the deal because other IAM locals at Lockheed plants in California ratified the agreement, and because it would be unfair to reward Marietta workers for rejecting a tentative agreement against the advice of their leaders.
Lockheed builds F/A-22 Raptor fighters and C-130J Hercules transports in Marietta, and both programs are facing deep cuts or early cancellation.

On May 7, 1996, Lockheed sent NSI a letter advising NSI that it was the owner of the SKUNK WORKS mark and requesting that NSI cease registering domain names that referred to or included the names "Skunk Works" or "Skunkworks" or otherwise infringed on Lockheed's mark.
Assuming Lockheed can establish NSI's role as a tortfeasor jointly and severally liable for infringing Lockheed's SKUNK WORKS mark, the Court holds that the SKUNK WORKS-type registrants are not necessary parties under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure ("Rule") 19(a), and therefore they are not indispensable parties under Rule 19(b).
Lockheed claims that it provided NSI with a file-stamped copy of the consent judgement and requested that NSI transfer the infringing domain name registrations to Lockheed, but NSI took no action.

Lockheed Aircraft Corporation's subsonic U-2 (see NASM collection) reconnaissance aircraft was an able platform but the U. Air Force recognized that this relatively slow aircraft was already vulnerable to Soviet interceptors.
Lockheed's clandestine 'Skunk Works' division (headed by the gifted design engineer Clarence L. "Kelly" Johnson) designed the A-12 to cruise at Mach 3.2 and fly well above 18,288 m (60,000 feet).
Lockheed hoped to achieve this by carefully shaping the airframe to reflect as little transmitted radar energy (radio waves) as possible, and by application of special paint designed to absorb, rather than reflect, those waves.

However, in 1929, the management of Lockheed voted to sell majority share ownership to the Detroit Aircraft Corporation, a Michigan-based holding company which already owned the Ryan and Eastman aircraft companies and which also had a substantial manufacturing capacity in the city of Detroit.
The timing of Detroit's acquisition of Lockheed had been particularly unfortunate, since it took place only three months before the stock market crash which was to plunge the USA into the Great Depression.
It would seem that Lockheed would be just one out of many casualties of the Depression, going down the tubes in much the same manner as did Thomas-Morse and Berliner-Joyce, its name never to be heard again.
