Lockheed Tristar - Built in California

As the first early passenger jets are retired, it is always fun to take a look back at where the industry has been. This classic video features Ronald Reagan speaking at the Rollout of the Lockheed 1011. Try and catch a current California governor doing that today! It is unfortunate that really only a shell of the aerospace industry that once was in California, is left. The video also mentions a failed project. The Los Angeles Intercontinental Airport, or Palmdale Intercontinental Airport, was a plan to convert Palmdale Airport into the next LAX.
