August 17, 1934, Northwest Airlines received their third Electra; the last Electra to have the reversed windscreen. This was converted to a mainstream look in the spring of 1935.

NC14244 roughly 1937, the paint scheme was red lettering against a black set of wings. This was done to correspond with the company's introduction of the Lockheed 14 Super Electra which the airline dubbed the "Sky Zephyr."

The Electra flew with the RCAF until December 14, 1944, when it was damaged in a crash landing in Edmonton, Canada.
