Special thanks to Harry Hargove for these special pictures. Harry is one of the few people on earth to start flying for American Airlines on a Ford Tri-Motor and finish his career as a Captain on a DC-10. An honorary member of the Black Sheep Squadron, he still can fly a DC-10 just as well as a Lockheed Lodestar.
