EAA Ford Trimotor 2013 Oshkosh AirVenture left engine on landing.  That is the propeller just to my left less than a foot from my window.  I sat in the first seat on the left behind the pilot.  The plane was built in 1929.  This airplane was the first aircraft owned by Eastern Airlines and was one of the first passenger airliners.  one seat on each side of the plane - carries 10 people - crossing the country.  Think about this this next time you have a problem on a trip.  As I looked at this propeller I was lad parts are still available - and that these are new.
