Stout Metal Airplane

At the Evergreen Air and Space Museum, they have a gorgeous Ford Tri-Motor. Ford purchased the Stout Metal Aircraft Company and made about 200 Ford Tri-Motors in the 1920's.

This plate is affixed to the side.

'Stout' doesn't refer to 'strong', but rather is the name of the guy who owned the Stout Metal Airplane Company before Ford bought it.
