In 1969, the genesis of today’s air cargo industry occurred. Eagle was there to answer the airlines call for an all-weather, high-speed cargo tractor which had not yet been invented. Eagle successfully engineered and developed the Ford F-350 Bob Tail for United Airlines at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. Within two decades, the Eagle Bob Tail had become the narrow and wide-body cargo towing standard used by all North American and British airlines, and also military GSE.  Still today, the Eagle Bob Tailremains the leading high-speed cargo tractor on the global market.
