History..
Built by the Lockheed company in 1930 the Sirius is the wheeled predecessor to Charles A. Lindbergh's Float plane nicknamed the "Tingmissartog". Which means "One who flies like big bird" in the Inuit language. Originaly named the "Explorer" and built for Harold Bromley in hopes to win th Tokyo Ashi prize of $25,000 for the first trans pacific flight between Japan and America. Although during takeoff over filled fuel tanks spilled into Harolds eyes blinding him and causing a crash. A second attempt at building the Explorer failed. So a third was made but now incorporating changes requested by Lindbergh including the name change to "Sirius". Harold never was succesfull in his attempts some of which didn't include the Lockheed company.
