Fly On The Ford: Experience The Golden Age of Aviation
A one-of-a-kind flight experience lands at the Mid America Museum of Aviation and Transportation as the Experimental Aircraft Association's immaculate 1929 Ford Tri-Motor begins an adventure in Sioux City, Iowa, September 4-7th, 2014.
Passengers have an opportunity to experience flight aboard the world's first mass-produced airliner. During the EAA's Ford Tri-Motor Tour, passengers travel back to the early days of what was considered luxurious commercial air travel. The Ford Tri-Motor, known as the "Tin Goose," was first built by the Ford Motor Company in the late 1920s. EAA's Ford Tri-Motor was constructed in 1929 and has a colorful history, with roles ranging from service as a Cuban airliner to fighting forest fires and transporting smoke jumpers. The airplane also has a Hollywood pedigree making cameo appearances in major motion pictures, including "Public Enemies" starring Johnny Depp.
EAA's Tri-Motor can carry up to ten passengers at a time, with every seat a window seat. Passengers are encouraged to bring a camera to record and share this experience. Tickets purchased in advanced are $70 for adults and $50 for children 17 years old or under. Walk up tickets are $75.
