FSX Ford Trimotor "Il Messaggero". Nicknamed the "Tin Goose",the Ford 4-AT Tri-Motor pioneered early airline and air transport routes. In 1925, the Ford Motor Company bought the Stout Metal Plane Company to gain rights to the Tri-Motor design. In all, 198 Ford Tri-Motors were built. During its years of regular service in the late 1920s and early 1930s, the Ford Tri-Motor helped popularize commercial flight and promote the safety of flying to travelers. This textures set in "Il Messaggero/Addis-Abeba" livery (fictional) requires a working copy of an FSX conversion of the default Microsoft Ford Tri-Motor. Installation instructions are included. Repaint by Manuele Villa.
