Original caption: The trime-low-wing transport plane purchased by the Amelia Earhart Fund for Aeronautical Research as a "flying laboratory," is a twin-engine Lockheed Electra. It is powered with two Pratt-Whitney motors. The plane will carry, instead of passenger seats, additional fuel tanks for extended non-stop flights by America's "First Lady of the Air." Miss Earhart and her husband, George Palmer Putnam, are in Los Angeles to watch completion of the plane, which will be delivered about July 1st. The flier will use Union Air Terminal, Burbank, California, as a base for the new plane. Left to right, above, are: George Palmer Putnam, Paul Mantz, aviator and advisor to Miss Earhart, and Amelia Earhart.
