Revision of 6.14.04 — all materials ©

The Amazing Story
of America’s Oldest
Flying Airliner
 
- PDF
This informal site has been established for those interested in the ongoing restoration and subsequent flight of one of America’s most significant vintage aircraft, Ford Tri-motor 4-AT-10.

There are quite a number of people asking about this ship and this seems to be the best way to make the information as accessible to as many people as possible. The site is not fancy as you can see.

To make it easier on people with slower Internet connections we have taken one large 50+ page document and broken it up into five or so pages segments. To read all the information and see all the pictures simply click through each of the segments. As you move from page to page you will find that the notes do not always fill a full page, just keep going to find the additional information.

We also encourage those who have specific knowledge of, or pictures of 1077/G-CARC to contact us as we would like to present as complete a history as possible. Our e-mail is TrimotorFord@hotmail.com. There are many people who have already contributed a great deal of information and to them we are all very thankful. When additional information is added the “revision date” above will be changed.

Have fun exploring the wonderful history of Ford 4-AT-10!
