Wisconsin Central Airlines   Lockheed 10-A Electra    N17375    (c/n 1096)


                                      Wisconsin Central Airlines was incorporated in 1944 but did not commence scheduled services until
                                      February of 1948.   It was originally a division of the Four Wheel Drive Company of Clintonville,
                                      Wisconsin.  The new airline had been awarded Air Mail Route 86 covering some 43 stations within
                                      Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota.  To service this network a small fleet of six Lockheed 10-As was
                                      acquired.  N17375 had originally been delivered to Hanford Airlines back in 1937.    The above image
