This section of the website is dedicated to our Lockheed Engineer’s Office exhibit.
It is a full-scale reproduction of what a hard-working Project Engineer’s Drafting Office might have looked like at the Lockheed Plant in Burbank, CA, in the 1939 thru the 1940’s.
It was built by our own Howard Ramshorn and Tim Mallis, with a helping hand from then member Ira Newman.
When you click on the thumbnail +, it will take you to a larger version of the photo. Just click the x at the top to close and come back here.
The exibiit has many actual items from that era, including:
- Desk Lamp
- Trench art ash tray
- Original Lockheed engineering white prints
- Lockheed P‑38 manuals
- P‑38 Test Flight reports
- Drafting Table
- Drafting Tools
- 1942 calendar
- Handmade tin P‑38 model
It is on display in our P‑38 Museum, which is located across the runway from the present-day March Air Reserve Base in Riverside, CA.
