Representative Steve Knight (R-CA) and Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), introduced a bipartisan resolution to honor the 75th anniversary of Lockheed Martin Skunk Works.

"For 75 years, the team at Skunk Works has been producing the tech, aircraft, and systems that have given our troops a generational advantage over our adversaries,” said Congressman Knight. Whether it be next-generation fighters that wrest us control of the skies, spy planes that allow us to watch our enemies with impunity, or other experimental aircraft that continue to push the envelope, the products of their work continue to inspire generations of pilots and engineers. We here in Southern California will always be immensely proud of our region’s contribution to American technological and military supremacy.” 

Skunk Works has been developing cutting-edge technology in California since World War II,” said Senator Feinstein. “From the original P-80 fighter jet to the U-2 spy plane, the SR-71 Blackbird to the F-35, the advancements made by Skunk Works continue to play a critical role in protecting our national security. The more than 2,700 men and women who work there should be proud of their accomplishments and know that our country is grateful for their contributions.
