Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology
Article publication date: 1 January 1944
FIRST doubling, then tripling of the rate of production of the Lockheed Lightning fighter without expansion of plant size has been made possible, by ingenious engineering adaptation of automobile chain‐line assembly practice to aircraft manufacture. The accompanying illustrations show clearly some of the features of this system.
