Built as one of the first all metal airliners the Ford Tri Motor, also affectionately known as the Tin Goose, played a large role in gaining the public’s acceptance of air travel. Less than 200 of the aircraft were produced during a production run that ran from 1925 until 1933 but their all metal construction allowed Ford to make the claim that it was the “safest airliner around.”

A handful of of Trimotors still exist in airworthy condition. N414H, a model 5-AT-C built in 1928, is still in use today as a flight instruction and type rating aircraft after over half a century of daily service flying tourists over the Grand Canyon in Arizona.
