Lockheed Vega Starliner



The Vega Starliner NX21725 was a five/six-seat low-wing cabin monoplane with retractable landing gear and an unusual powerplant. The model 22 was a modification with 640hp Menasco Unitwin 2-544 and a single tail. This comprised two 194kW Menasco C6S-4 inline engines, mounted side-by-side, and coupled to drive together, or independently in emergency, a single propeller.
First flown on 22 April 1939 (piloted by B A Martin), the Starliner was abandoned after some 85 flight test hours as there was no demand for an aircraft in this category.
