This is actually the very same aircraft used in the movie "Public Enemies"... EAA advertised it as such when I was lucky enough to catch a ride on her visit to Minneapolis. This is the best ground shot I've seen of 'er, the black and white is a nice touch!

Saw one of these in the movie 'Public Enemies' ! Very cool looking for being an older plane. What a beast!!

Ole Henry was a genous! I bought a ticket in MO> back in 1972,to take a ride on one of these tin goose's but they gave us our money back so we never got to ride. It is too bad ford stopped building Planes,& tractors & trucks,just to get the fed off their backs. Henry was serious about selling a plane once for sport flying(a model"t") too bad He stopped that too.

Besides being a great photo, this is just a classic scene with the old hangar at OSH in the background, the aircraft itself, and the effect of the black and white on the photograph.
