The Stout 3-AT tri motor prototype aircraft at Ford Airport in Dearborn, Michigan
Dearborn Michigan USA Date:1925 Duration:1 min 35 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Views of the Stout 3-AT prototype during engine testing at Ford Airport. The prototype Stout 3-AT airplane seen parked with engines running. Several persons go in and out of her cabin, while three men in caps stand atop the fuselage around another, wearing a fedora, in the open cockpit above the cabin. Several different views of the plane are shown. One, from under the right wing, fades out as the engines are shut down and the propellers slow and stop. In final scene, a man leaving the airplane, drops his hat (fedora) and retrieves it near the airplane's tail. (Note: Among other differences, from later Ford Tri-Motor airplanes, the open air cockpit above its cabin is a particularly distinctive feature of this ungainly Stout 3-AT prototype aircraft.)
