SEPTEMBER24-25,1949

For nearly four years now, Hercules
executives have relied on company
planes to speed them to business
appointments. Two Lockheed Lodestars,
based at the New Castle County Airport,
enable executives to cut travel time and
make

more business calls. The two planes, one of
which was the first in the country to be
equipped with plane-to-ground telephone, have
flown a total of 500,000 air miles.
