The Ford Trimotor aircraft was designed by William Bushnell Stout. With the support of Henry and Edsel Ford, the plane was improved until the Fords could put the plane into production. In that plane, Charles Lindbergh inaugurated the first cross country passenger service of America. Richard E. Byrd used a "Tin Goose" to fly over the South Pole, and another Goose carried Franklin D. Roosevelt to Chicago in 1932 to give his acceptance speech at the national Democratic Party convention.
