                                                          Between 1926 and 1933 some 200 Trimotors were built in Ford's own factory. Corrugated metal on great thick monoplane wings was a German development, used in Junker JU-52 planes that were flying the Berlin-Rome-London route. Trimotors were flown by airlines, oil companies and wealthy individuals. The Ford Trimotor and Junkers JU-52 were pioneering aircraft that led to generations of Douglas and Boeing fleets of aircraft, soon to criss-cross the world.

Fast, powerful, and maneuverable, with 75-gallon tanks under each wing, its ability to fly 6-hour missions was unheard of at the time. In 1944 the Truman Senate War Investigating Committee gave the Mustang its highest rating as �the most aerodynamically perfect pursuit plane in existence.�

Our iconic aluminum desk fighter planes, a Mustang and a Spitfire, are exact copies of WWII original trench art models. The originals were probably crafted by plane mechanics stationed in isolated airfields in the British Isles.

Hand crafted creations from gifted soldiers and army personnel became known as trench art. They used whatever material was at hand�bullet shells, wood, and fabric, during an era when planes were built from fabric on a frame. Popular fabrications included lighters and clocks made in all shapes and sizes.

Brightly painted in various national colors, it ruled the skies for a number of years. Some of the propellers were later suppled by an American propeller maker. Admire the shape and finish of a wood creation that once propelled daring aviators over uncharted landscapes. Feel the smooth, somewhat distressed, honey surface. The punched serial numbers around the hub. The authentic 1030s maker's decal....

You yell�"Contact" and the propeller jumps to life, the plane starts to shudder. The mechanic pulls away the wheel blocks and escapes. The noise is incredible, a nine-cylinder Hispano-Suiza�spewing clouds of vaporized castor-oil. Complete cacophony....the propeller is by now an invisible whirr. Out of the way, this is hands-on flight at its finest, ready for take-off? Adrenaline flows, the sky is beckoning.
