I was thinking "that's a weird car" until we saw out the window
You need to read my brother
@@OM-bs7of I usually just watch the video first
nah for real
Watching a radial engine and it still works, those mechanics deserve a raise
If you mean the mechanics that crafted the engine they’re all%99 dead but if you mean the maintenance technicians then yeah it’s a miracle she still flies.
I remember watching this video completely stoned and I almost had a panic attack imagining having to do this as a job in 1929
Bro, I'm stoned asf rn and my heart jumped having the same thought😮
@@bilanoid22 Brooo facts. Seen this months ago and had to turn off phone to relax. Weed can be intense. Peace brother
The exact opposite happened to me I wished I could fly it so much I had weed dreams about it lmao
Okay, that is really freaking cool
I thought the same thing. Amazing! Thanks for sharing
That's Mankind and it's true ability to create.
I rode in one in an airshow was super kool and loud
U mean fucking*
The “ Nahh ill just catch a uber im good. “ ride 🤣
Classic. This was before the days of Ford’s “push to start” and “tow to garage to start”.
The start up of those engines give me chills man
That was a once in a lifetime for me. I LOVED it.
Okay but why jerk off the throttle?
@@Wtfinches a little gay
He's priming the motor.. I have an old Ford truck and it's three pumps to the floor and she'll start everytime.. meaning it's naturally aspirated...
it's like a pair of Reebok Pumps
Wow, I didn't realize any Ford Tri- motors were still around! The old, old, airliner. When the DC-3 came out , everyone kissed its wings! Travel in a tri for a few hours. Just think of the first ppl to go across country in this!
There are still a few flying, no reason they can't stay that way as long as they stay uncrashed.
That’s cool the engine sounds awesome when it cranks over
Imagine you getting chased and the only plane available is this one 😂
Indiana Jones temple of doom moment
This is actually fairly quick compared to a lot of planes in use today, have you seen the manual starts for fighter jets haha
@@tylerbrooking7750 he means the amount of time it takes to start the GD plane 💀
Tom cruise moment
My grand parents & my mom crashed in a Ford Tri-Motor taking off from Chicago Municipal Airport in the 1930’s. All survived the crash with various injuries. The pilot later passed from his injuries. The loss of the #1 engine on takeoff was the probable cause of the crash..
I was lucky enough to be a passenger in one of these planes last summer. 1929 Ford Trimotor plane.
So did I, in 2018.
Seeing super old planes start their engines and take off flying once again is always a beautiful sight. That goes for all vehicles of war or cival use
So true, and it is amazing how the people stick so much work in this beautiful pieces. I love it to see those machines work again
It’s interesting to see how much has changed in 100 years
@@DavidAlanArnold yeah and how fast the technology developed. But these old pieces are still great, it’s like they have their own soul
@@DavidAlanArnold not much to start a Cessna 182 you have to do the same
The old stuff was designed to last our new stuff not so much unless it's for Military use and even then it doesn't last very long without breaking
I had the opportunity to fly one of these in 2023 and they are beautiful planes. Also, I’ve flew mine in Findlay Ohio for anyone who was wondering and I was a passenger not a pilot
My dad (yes, my dad) flew these (AT-5) back in the 20s. I flew on one in 2018 (Venice, FL) and was lucky enough to sit in the copilot's seat. We took about a 20 minute flight. It was like flying in a big graceful bird. We cruised at about 1100', doing about 80-85mph.
From first flight to this in 26 years. That's impressive.
26 years? Where you get that number
My thoughts exactly 😂
@shayharris6544 1903 Wright Brothers flew the first plane ever caught me off guard for a sec too
Another ten it was a jet
@@shayharris6544You didn’t go to school? When did the Wright brothers flew the first successful flight?
Really cool, Ford made everything at one time or another!
I loved that old vintage sounds with all parts having a perfect function ❤❤❤❤❤
I love how Garmin is sitting on a 94 year old plane
We updated some stuff.
@@DavidAlanArnoldyea that’s needed
We use it in literally everything, it's funny, I know a guy with a 70 year old helicopter, look inside and you'll see Garmin
The $60 Garmin is the most advanced piece of technology on that whole rig
@@tayloralvidrez4342 nope absolutely not
Flew in one with my wife and kids around Lake Erie. It was like living out the pages from a history book! Just absolutely amazing!
Did the same out of Vienna, Ohio, flew over Mosquito lake in 2022. Definitely a time machine for sure, hopefully we can get to do it again.
Glad to see old prop planes run and the ppl who know how to fly em
I was an M48A2C tank crew member and I remember how to operate the handle pump before starting the engine ^^
Oh. What year is your tank?
@@DavidAlanArnold It was operated during the Korean military service from 1999 to 2006 The tram was retired at the end of 2007
I was mechanic driver of t55 in ussr(1985-1987). I too made start with pumping. Sorry for my English, i learn Deutsch when was pupil
@@kayfarik228your English is phenomenal for not being your first language
The lever near the steering wheel is a wobble pump, used to prime the carburetor. Also the definition of "Built Tough".
Extremely neat history. Always enjoy seeing how the ones before us had it
The Garmin really brought me back to 1929
are you upset about this or something
@@UJustGotGamed yes I’m furious, absolutely fuming with rage
@@UJustGotGamedhe isn't, but you are.

I was lucky enough to get a ride on one of these back in the 90s Had a GPS also 😄 was owned by an airline pilot was a real Cool experience 😊😊
Now that is the coolest thing that I have seen this week. Cheers. 🇨🇦
literally a flying piece of history
Its not even flying
Ford made planes for the government for the mail carriers
@@charlieg6799but it starts dombo🙄
@@prassetiyoutomo7858but it starts dombo 🙄
It really is. And I love that it has a Ford steering wheel.
Only plane I've ever flown in, was smooth as silk and sounded great.
These sounds are so soothing 😊
never thought i’d see 1930’s F150 steering wheels in a plane but here we are
little did we know its actually a 1929 Ford Plane steering wheel thats in the 1930’s Ford F150🧐
Henry Ford museum in Detroit is a must see. You will find out a lot about mr Ford’s planes and other inventions. Highly suggested
Mad respect for all those who made these and rode them 😊
I love seeing machines from the past having been perfectly preserved and holding true to their original function! This is awesome
Museum Quality Tri Motor by EAA
And a real enjoyment to fly in! The EEA stopped here in Hastings, Nebraska before COVID with it. I am glad that the EEA sees the need to preserve and fly the old planes around for we people to get to see and enjoy them. And I really appreciate the wonderful pilots that donate their time to fly these planes around, to display and gives flights to we of the public. It really burns my butt that we have people trying to shutdown the flying and displaying of these old birds.
Donating their time and risking considerably shortening their lives 😏❤️
@@mrkiplingreallywasanexceed8311 They know the planes they fly, and fully understand their risks. They truly live to fly the vintage aircraft. You should attend an EAA event and talk with the pilots and support personnel. You could come home with a compete understanding of the EAA and the members, and why they do what they do.
I love when people spell out the most cookie cutter thoughts imaginable
Imagine the person who created it. Definitely a genius
It stalls mid flight. “Hold on guys, there’s steps for this! And it takes a minute or so”
What a beautiful feat of engineering for it to still be in service to today
Was thinking the same thing. The less electronic parts the better.
@@TheFrenchPug😂😂😂 ok play the music in that plane
@@jorgenitales3368 You just take your phone and Bluetooth headphones. Easy
@@TheFrenchPugyeah… guess who obsoleted now😂
Cars and airplanes haven’t really changed much over the last 100 years.
That’s a beautiful thing!💪🏻
I have the Model kit, can't wait to start it , Ford Tri motor Aroplane
Ok that was pretty friggin cool to start up, every kids dream. Imagine if you had to do this for your car.
You absolutely had to do similar things to cars.
A few things have changed in 94 years
Imagine a horror movie with the car cliche. Pumping as fast as humanely possible
Exactly like any carbureted vehicle I ever owned, accelerator pumps job is to squirt a bit of fuel to get er going!!!!!

Never knew Ford even made aircraft. How cool.
Ford built more B-24's during WW2 than anyone else.
Ford was responsible for over 8000 b24 bomber planes built during world war 2
The Ford Tri-motor, and close to 7,000 b-24 bombers.
It’s a Ford!
Personally, I think the Ford Steering Wheel is super -neat in this thing
That's a lot of moving parts that hv to mk that thing go right. Brilliant.
That’s our popular Wasp engine! I love to just stare at it every time I pass by it in one of our buildings
Seeing a ford logo on the steering wheel of a plane has got to be one of the most terrifying things 😂😂😂
Death wobble in the sky🤣🤣
@@dankbeast9013 I hope it was designed with a misfire in mind 😂
@@thedragoonafilms2406 misfire as in launching spark plugs out of it right?😂😂
@@dankbeast9013 not to mention the size of the parachute needed for the pilots 300 lb girlfriend when it breaks down a block away from the dealership 😂

I saw one of these fly over my city once , it was neat
I love the Ford Tri-motor. Great plane.😊
Just imagine the feeling back in the days
It would feel like right now except they would think that was state of the art tech 😂e
@@dakotamcdaniel7879Quantum computers cannot and probably will never be used for real world or industrial applications.

I saw one fly over my house once. The sound of triple radial engines is unmistakable.
Wow 😲, Thx For Sharing..Who Didn't😅 Know Ford Plaine Existed 😊 😮I Am Amazed #MuchLove #❤
Had to do the same procedure to start my 71’ Newport.
Imagine having to flee really quickly but you have to wait 30 min before it starts 😂
That's what getaway drivers are for
I mean in an absolutely dire situation realistically there’s a lot of steps that could be cut out
To be honest that’s kinda the way it is with all planes - so many steps that you have to take before even starting an engine safely and so, so few when starting it quickly😂
Constructor, after half of the Car is ready: "Oh come on, lets build a plane!"
Love the ford steering wheel

Whoever was flying this has got some serious balls !!! Huge respect 🙏
@@DavidAlanArnoldno all balls lmfao
The Ford Trimotor is one of the most reliable aircraft ever built.
Notice the line service guy with the fire prevention. That's because those early radials leak oil and fuel and are known to catch fire on start up.
both my parentd worked for pratt and whitney for 40 yrs i love this shit
I love the car style steering wheel, not something I was expecting
So right. It’s the Ford Steering Wheel for me.
Me:Weird how he's carrying a fire exit Pilot: Nothing to worry about
So much fun just starting the engines 😎👍
Wow they even had a touch screen on the dashboard. Really ahead of their time. Great video 👍🏻
Ha. They updated a few things.

I was like "that thing looks like a plane interior" and then he show out side the window damn
What a beautiful peace of engineering history
Beautiful plane the Trimotor. And radials will always sound better than a jet.
Yeah that's what PanAm thought
Thanks man... You never know when you gona need them skills
This is exactly how I start my old Gateway desk top computer!
Flying in the copilot seat of this vintage plane was an amazing experience.
Once in a Lifetime for me
Eu tinha um professor de historia muito maneiro Ele fez isso numa visita em um local historico da regiao, nunca mais passei sede(tenho filtro em casa e nunca mais fui pro mato)
Funny, that's strikingly similar to how I have to start my 2004 Ford Fiesta
Words cannot describe the feeling of amazingness when riding sonething vintage like this. My grandfather had an original model t ford, with the front crank and the hood that folded, rather then lifted. I loved taking rides in it when i was a kid.
Not sure how I'd feel having that propeller right next to me
The Ford and Focker Trimotors are about as epic as pre war transports get, both are way too rare these days.
Ford Tri Motor. Very cool old plane. I paid 200.00 for a ride in one 30 years ago at Oshkosh. Great time!!
Same!! But I did it only a few years ago, it’s crazy they still offer rides in a plane that’s almost a hundred years old
Fiquei surpreso em saber que a Ford foi fabricante de avião.
There are to class of people in envy in this world. Plane pilots and divers... they both get to know a whole different world that is beyond earth.
POV me and the boys as soon as the FAA leaves even though they claimed “it wasn’t air worthy”
You don't have to be airworthy to start engines and taxi, you could've done it right in front of them and ain't shit they would've done😂
I wouldnt go up in the air in this even if it was new. What are they going to do prescribe me a murcury pill like abe lincoln?
@@TheAnnoyingBoss Back then they overbuilt the airframe because using aluminum was new and they didn't fully understand it's strength and how to make the different alloys used today.
Yeah, no thanks
These old tei motors are still very air worthy. I flew in one just before COVID shut things down. Had a very good flight, and the plane was solid in flight as well as landing. Do you know that commercial pilots fly these planes from show to show? I talked with one pilot that ferries around the one I flew on. He flys the new commercial jets for his occupation, but flies these old planes around because of just the love of the old aircraft. Do you think he would be flying it if there was much danger involved? My flight on the trip motor was as smooth as a commercial jet, the motors sounded prettier than a jet, and we were low enough to be able to enjoy the sights of the land below. Hell yes, I would fly in it again given the chance.
And to think they had Garmin sat nav in 1929. amazing
I really love flying this in MS 2004
dawg the idea of flying a ford from 1929 in vans is fuckin sick to me 😂
Thats a Ford Tri-motor!! very cool.
Ford used to make everything back in the day. Wish they could still manage that today
I was in a skydiving plane early 80s when the pilot got all excited. Looked out and and one of these was flying close by. Followed it for a few minutes and tried to get him on the radio. Thing looked brand new.
Might have been this one. Today, they say there area only 2 still flying.
That amazing that it still runs and everything
That must be the funnest plane to fly. Not too many buttons and notches. But the ones that are their you press and twist to go faster.
Actually they say it’s a challenge to fly. They really improved every aspect of aviation since 1929.
We gettin' off madagascar with this one🗣️🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Bro pumping the holy shi lever!!🤣🤣😭
Just flew on THIS EXACT tri motor in CA! Blast from the past. FRENCH VALLEY Airport CA
That’s just goofy, I love it.
Was really hoping someone was going to yell, "CONTACT!!!!"
My ride in one of those was a blast.. They fly slow, but take off in very short distance.
