The Lockheed Plant

The Lockheed Plant in Marietta has been building many of the world’s most legendary aircraft for the past 60 years–and that doesn’t even count its service building B-29 bombers for the Bell Aircraft Company during World War II. Lockheed’s six decades have seen the plant build jet bombers, like the B-47 Stratojet; the world’s most dominant fighter jet (the F-22 Raptor); and the most vaunted cargo planes (C-130 Hercules, C-141 StarLifter, and C-5 Galaxy). In Images of America: The Lockheed Plant, readers will learn about those planes, the people who designed and assembled them, and the plant in which they were built. The striking images in this book were shared by Lockheed Martin and the Marietta Daily Journal and depict the plant from its construction through today.
