Johnson (1910-1990) created innovative technical concepts that significantly advanced aircraft design, performance and reliability.
Johnson helped design 40 of the world's top aircraft, including the Lockheed P-38 Lightning; the model 10 Electra used by Amelia Earhart; the XC-35, the first successful pressurized cabin plane in 1936; and the "Super Electra" used by Howard Hughes to set a record-smashing flight around the world.
He also designed the U-2 and SR-71 "Blackbird" which made a non-stop flight from New York to London in 1 hour, 55 minutes.
