Fly The 1929 Ford Tri Motor - The First Ever Passenger Plane

Known as the Tin Goose, the 1929 Ford Tri Motor was the World's First Passenger Plane.  Previously, it took 4 days to travel via train from New York to LA.
    The Ford Tri Motor cut the travel time to just 2 days. (There weren't airports yet in New York, so you had to take a train from the city to Ohio to catch the plane)
