One shrinking division, the Lockheed California Company, is an aircraft company without an aircraft program. Frank Koch of American Airlines entices the company and they design the Kochmobile. A mid-range wide body is developed utilizing the technical skills of Lockheed. They can design and build the fastest, highest flying fighter airplane, the biggest cargo airplane, the most powerful missiles, and the newest and best commercial airliner the L-1011. What was supposed to be a rich monopoly venture ends up a costly head to head competition. Just when the company begins to perform well its engine supplier, Rolls-Royce of Derby, England, goes bankrupt. Haughton without hesitation jumps in and leads the effort to restart the program. Lockheed is almost at its knees financially and trying to bring a fractured production line back on stream when problems erupt.
