A full-scale side view mock-up of a Ford Tri-Motor under construction in the America by Air exhibition.  A vibrating platform (to simulate the typical vibrations felt), authentic audio, and actual passenger seats help to demonstrate what it was like for passengers to fly in a Tri-Motor.   A real Ford Tri-Motor hangs above (not pictured).
