'The first plane of the new transcontinental air line, of which Col. Lindbergh is one of the organizers, photographed at Boiling Fields [sic].' Bolling Field was the same runway as Anacostia until 1935, when the US Army moved to a new Bolling Field nearby. TAT offered the first coast-to-coast air service between New York and Los Angeles in 1929, although the 48-hour journey involved a night train between NY and Columbus, Ohio and another one between Waynoka, Oklahoma and Clovis, New Mexico. 'Take A Train' soon merged with Maddux Air Lines, and then with Western Air Express to form TWA in 1930. Photo from: Library of Congress

The logo on the fuselage is that of Phenick Flying Service, a small company formed in the 1930s by Herman Phenegar and Oscar Nichols. On 27 February 1939 they bought this 1928 Tri-Motor. They sold rides for 75 cents - note the company caravan equipped with megaphones. The aircraft was bought by the US government on 30 November 1942 to assist in the construction of the Pan American Highway in Costa Rica, where it later became TI-61. The old terminal and tower of then Port Columbus Airport are in the background. Photo from: Columbus Metropolitan Library

N9651 was built in 1929 for Trans Continental Air Transport. At the time the slide was taken Mr. Irv Perlitch owned the aircraft. He also owned the Flying Lady Ranch Museum, and N9651 was maintained in flying condition, being exhibited at fly-ins and airshows often. Upon the closure of the museum in 1993 it was purchased by Mr. Kermit Weeks of Polk City, FL., where the a/c currently resides.

Although marked as RR-5 Bureau Number 9205, this is actually 4-AT-E N7861 which never was assigned to the US Navy. It was originally built in 1928 as a 4-AT-B and converted by the factory in 1929 to a 4-AT-E. N7861 spent most of its flying career with Johnson Flying Service, where it was used as an insect spray aircraft as well as under contract with the US Forest Service as a smoke jumper transport. It was donated to the museum in 1973. The US Navy and US Marine Corps had a total of 9 Ford Tri-Motors of various types in their inventory, all ordered between 1927-1931.

Finish of the 1930 Ford Reliability Tour at Ford's own airport near Detroit. NC8485 / 6, piloted by Harry Russell, took first place. It appears that this plane was at this point the sole 7-AT, with one 420-hp P&W Wasp and two 300-hp Wright J-6 engines. NC401H / 5, a 5-AT-C, took fourth place. Note, centre right inside the hangar, the Fokker F.VIIa/3m Josephine Ford, which Richard Byrd flew over or near the North Pole in 1926. This historic aircraft was the very first Fokker trimotor, demonstrated by Tony Fokker in the 1925 Reliability Tour. It is preserved near here in the Henry Ford Museum.
