A detailed replica of
Tin Goose", the nickname given to the three-engine transport plane developed
by Henry Ford. A total of 199 Ford
were produced between 1925 and 1933. Notable pilots such as Charles
Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart flew the Ford Trimoter. The long-range
capabilities made it an obvious choice for a South Pole expedition in 1929.
The Ford Trimotor also holds the distinction of being one of the first uses
of an aircraft in a presidential election when Franklin Roosevelt flew
aboard during his 1932 campaign. Designed for civilian purposes, the
aircraft was also used by military units. An impressive item to
display, with a wing-span of over 40", this replica would make an ideal gift
for a vintage flight enthusiast.
