Old and new

A 1929 Ford Tri-Motor heads one way on a runway while an F-16 jet passes the other way at AirVenture in Oshkosh. Henry Ford designed the first Tri-Motor, also known as "The Tin Goose" after WWI, hoping to capture the next phase of mass transportation. He built the plane with three motors to overcome concerns about engine reliability. Brian Cassella, Chicago Tribune
