Some of the aircraft companies of the 1930s distinguished themselves by particular elegance of design. In Britain, Mitchell’s Supermarine, de Havilland and Miles were among the best in this area. On the other side of the Atlantic, one company particularly comes to mind – Lockheed. The military Lockheed Hudson was perhaps not as elegant as its contemporary silver-coloured Lockheed propliners, but it still had a decent share of that unmistakable Lockheed DNA – closely related to the streamlining ideal of the 1930s.

Have a look at this video of a restored Hudson in Australia and judge for yourself!
