Product Details


The Lockheed S-3 was an aircraft that saw four companies work together. The first two companies to be involved were Lockheed and Grumman. The two began to develop the concept after the US Navy initiated its VSX program, which called for a new anti-submarine aircraft. This happened in the middle of the 1960s, which was just about the time the Grumman S-2 Tracker should retire. However, Lockheed admitted that it wasnÕt experienced enough in designing a carrier-based aircraft. As such, the company sought the help of two more companies during the late 1960s. It contracted Ling-Temco-Vought to work on the aircraftÕs foldable wings, tail set-up, and landing gear, among others. To work on the planeÕs sensors and computers, Sperry Univac Federal Systems was brought in.

This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
