A trip back in time with the Ford Trimotor
from FLYING Magazine
"You push that tip up, and I'll grab this one." Raising myself on my toes, I push the tip of the 9-foot propeller upward; the other end drops into Chuck Wentworth's reach, and he pulls it through. We repeat the procedure a few times, clearing any residual oil from the cylinders, and then move on to the next propeller. This one is too high up to reach; Chuck mounts a tall ladder to pull it through, then on to the third and the tiptoe method again.
