Florida Airways  Stout 2-AT Pullman     Unknown registration or c/n


                                           Inasmuch as Florida Airways was purchased by Harold Pitcairn, who in turn sold his
                                           airline to North American Aviation, dba Eastern Air Transport, this ancient Ford can be
                                           said to be a direct ancestoir of Eastern Air Lines.    It was flown by Florida Airways on
                                           their air mail route from Atlanta to Miami in 1925.   This grainy image came from a Ford
                                           Company publication acquired in the 1940s.  They weren't too fussy in those days about
                                           assigning registration numbers and, if this craft had one, it wassn't painted on.
