While the Detroit Aircraft Corporation was later dissolved, going down the tubes in much the same manner as did Thomas-Morse and Berliner-Joyce, the Lockheed name got an unexpected second chance. Only five days after the doors of the corporation had been locked, a miracle took place. A new group of investors bought the assets of the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation division for only $40,000, and the company was brought back from the dead.
