Tech of the Past: Ford Flivver

In the 1920s, Henry Ford even got in on the action with his Ford Flivver (a 1926 model is shown here), which was called the "Model T of the Sky." While this plane was expected to give everyone the ability to fly, instead the relative lower safety and higher cost of flying kept it from becoming a reality.
