Lockheed Electra 10A, No. 1080 and registered G-AEPN, was sold to British Airways Ltd., on February 7, 1937, and was used primarily on the airline's London-Stockholm and London-Berlin routes. Just three months after the start of World War II, on December 19, 1939, the Electra was pressed into service by the RAF and continued to operate as G-AEPN until April 12, 1940, when the registration changed to W9105. On the night of November 6, 1940, while parked at Hendon, Electra 1080 was destroyed during an air raid.
