Adult Ford Trimotor "Tin Goose" T-Shirt
How do innovator's think? The early history of flight was fascinating, so much so that Henry Ford could not resist being involved. Henry Ford's "Tin Goose" was the first mass-produced, all metal, three engines commercial airliner engaging the age of commercial airline industry. Under Ford and Stout Airlines, passengers were confident they would fly safely as with one engine failure there were two others to keep the flight intact. Henry's investment in runways and terminals added to that confidence.
Celebrate this flight milestone as Henry reminds us: "You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do." Henry just went out and did it. 100% light weight cotton.
