Tag Archives: Ford Tri-Motor

Random Aviation Photo

Back in September 2013, a very special aircraft came to Maryland’s Frederick Municipal Airport, home to my former employer the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) — a fully restored Ford Tri-Motor.  The 1929 three-motored aircraft is owned and operated by the Experimental Aircraft Association. For $70 in advance or $75 on the day of the flight, you can take a ride in this piece of history.

Click here to see where the aircraft will be — and spend the money to take the flight.  Below is a shot I took from my window seat as we flew over Frederick. Go to the 6:35 minute mark for my 3-minute  video clip of the very first story I did for AOPA Live This Week  on my ride, and see all my photos from the event at my Flickr account. Enjoy!
