Description: edge wear; The symbol of the Lockheed Company is a winged star, and the company has named many of its planes after stars or constellations -- Vega, Sirius, Altair, and Orion. Researchers went to the library read books and found something they liked. This was a Greek myth that told of the Pleiades, the seven daughters of Atlas. As young women they were pursued through the forest by the hunter Orion. The great god Jupiter took pity on them and changed them first to doves then to a group of stars, the constellation we call Pleiades. In the beginning there were seven stars -- the seven sisters. But the one named Electra could not bear to see her beloved city of Troy perish in the flames of war. She tore herself away from her sisters and became a comet. At that is why only six stars are clearly visible in the Pleiades. One was lost, Electra. Amelia Earhart made her last flight in an Electra. Like the plane's namesake, she became a lost star. And in a career that lasted only nine years she lighted up the sky and then like a comet, disappeared from sight.
