Hmmm I wonder what these overhead buttons do... 🤔

Your next visit to Maui, log some flight time with one of our experienced flight instructors and discover flying Hawaiian Islands for yourself! Yes, you fly the plane! Even if it's your first time ever!

my favorite part of any flight is when the pic shouts “fly metal sky bird!”

Cleaning planes today with @realcleanaviationproducts . Clean plane is a happy plane-at least that’s what the owners tell me.

Here's another crazy concept airlifter...the six-engine Lockheed GL-194.
When embarking upon aviation archeological searches, you encounter many dead ends. 
In this case, the only GL-194 information I can easily find are these photos. 
the first two are from an eBay listing that ended several years ago. It, apparently, was a traveling demonstration model, presumably used by a Lockheed exec to present the concept to high-ranking USAF officials.
The last photo came from printed material showing the general arrangement of the aircraft.
Lockheed obviously ended up with the C-141 Starlifter, which in turn led to the C-5 Galaxy...but this concept is an interesting look at how they got there.
Sporting six JT3D engines, as used on the 707, DC-8, C-141, and B-52, this particular concept was planned to have a maximum takeoff weight of 411,000 lbs (186,000 kg). Overall, that weight, the planned payload, and the dimensions were very close to that of the C-141, which Lockheed ultimately ended up building.
It would be interesting to learn what specific design criteria led to the GL-194's early demise. It's entirely possible the USAF decided they wanted no more than four engines for their airlifter, leading to the C-141.
It's frustrating to know that the rest of the story is almost certainly stored away in some anonymous, forgotten storeroom or warehouse, forever hidden from public view.
Hey @lockheedmartin - how about lending me the keys for a few days so I can curate some of your company’s lesser-known achievements throughout history? ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #avgeek #aircraft #aviation #pilot #avpic #avpics #instaplane #instapilot #instaaviation #flight #flying #plane #planes #airplane #instagramaviation #aircraftrecognition #cessnateur #lockheed #lockheedmartin #c141 #c141starlifter #aviationarcheology
