Lawrence D. McKinley started with Lockheed in 1939 as a final assembly installer and later worked on such projects as the P-38, logistics support with the Japanese Air Force, and the Lockheed L-2000 (SST Proposal). McKinley was named Configuration Manager of Lockheed's SST program in 1965 and retired from Lockheed in early 1967.
