Advertisement Promoting Commercial Flight in Ford Tri-Motor Airplanes, "Your Place...," March 1931

Summary

While air travel was not exactly an everyday experience by March 1931, when Ford Motor Company published this advertisement, it was certainly a regular feature of American life. Ford rightfully claimed some credit for that. Its all-metal Tri-Motor airplane, built from 1926-1933, was rugged, reliable and widely used in both passenger and freight airline service.
