Historic Aircraft In Mitchell Through Wednesday

The Experimental Aircraft Association is bringing its restored 1929 Ford Tri-Motor airliner to Mitchell Municipal Airport Monday through Wednesday as part of its summer tour.  The tour provides opportunities for aviation enthusiasts in the area to see and ride in the world’s first mass-produced airliner.  The Ford Tri-Motor, nicknamed the “Tin Goose,” was built by the Ford Motor Company in the late 1920s. EAA’s airplane underwent a 12-year restoration beginning in the 1970s and since the mid-1980s, has been based at the EAA Air Venture Museum’s historic Pioneer Airport located in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.  The public will have the opportunity to take 15-minute flights aboard this unique aircraft.  You can pre-book a flight by calling 1-877-952-5395.
