Lockheed acquired several companies in the 1990s, and their legacy is also part of the Lockheed Martin story. I am from Ford Aerospace, and we have a past that I would like to share. I am sure Sam Araki and Vance Coffman would agree with me. I have written two articles for the AIAA in 2009 and 2010 with a peek at Philco, Philco-Ford and Aeronutronic (Newport Beach). Most people are not aware that there was a time when Ford Motor Company considered buying Lockheed. I am sure IBM Federal Systems and others bought out by Lockheed would like to tell their story and share their legacy. I hope they do!
