HE MADE IT A WHOLE NEW BALLGAME.

The moment they announced his name the roar as deafening, unremitting, triumphant. On that day, June 13, 1948, a solitary figure stepped out of history and slowly, haltingly, walked onto the playing field of Yankee Stadium for one final bow. The magic was still there. They say you could hear the crowd all the way to Manhattan the day the Yankees retired forever the famous number 3 of the legendary Babe.

Babe Ruth. Nobody before or since has dominated the game so totally. During his career he set no less than 76 batting and pitching records. His hitting was thunderous. And the crowds loved him. He always put on a show.

Power and dependability. Subjects we think about a lot. (The copy talks about how Litton products are both powerful and reliable.)

REAL POWER.
THERE'S A SECRET TO MAKING IT LAST.

He was 76 years old. He had led his nation through the most devastating war in history. But in 1951 many felt he had lost his grip on British politics. That was the year that Winston Churchill once again beat the odds to emerge as Prime Minister. He celebrated by giving his V-for-victory sign from Conservative Headquarters in South Woodford.

The secret to lasting power was, and is determination. We know. Back in late 1983 the U.S. Navy wanted to extend the life and performance of the high power, crossed field amplifiers used in its 3-D shipboard radars. (The copy explains how Litton solved the problem.)

SHE HAD A HABIT OF MAKING AVIATION HISTORY.

She was slender and five feet eight inches tall. An ex-nurse and social worker. The kind of woman you might imagine as the mother of two in the cottage down the street.

You would have been wrong. Amelia Earhart was headstrong, fearless, totally confident, and obsessed with flying. Veteran pilots called her a natural. She had barely learned to fly before she was stunting. And two years after her first flying lesson, she had already set a new woman's altitude record.

That was just the beginning. In 1932, with her altimeter and tachometer gone, she landed in a cow pasture outside Londonderry, Ireland to become the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic. Later she acknowledged the public with a modest wave.

Making aviation history is a heady experience. (The copy talks about Litton has also been making aviation history.)
