EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wisconsin — (February 28, 2023) — EAA’s annual tradition of touring a vintage Ford Tri-Motor across the country to give people a taste of the Roaring ‘20s returns in 2023. As part of an agreement with the Liberty Aviation Museum in Port Clinton, Ohio, EAA will take the museum’s 1928 Ford Tri-Motor 5-AT-B on a tour with stops already scheduled in nine different states.
The first stop on the schedule is in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky, from April 6-9. Some other stops already confirmed include Evansville, Indiana, from April 13-16 and Columbia, South Carolina, from May 11-14. The Tri-Motor will return to its home in Port Clinton for two stops on June 30-July 2 and September 1-3. The aircraft will also be in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, for the entire week of EAA AirVenture, July 24-30, allowing attendees to see the world’s largest fly-in from a different perspective. More stops will be added to the schedule online as they are finalized.
Tickets aboard the Tri-Motor are $65 for children 17 and under, $85 for adult EAA members, and $95 for adult nonmembers. Every seat in the aircraft is a window seat, offering a view of the surrounding area. Each flight experience is approximately 30 minutes, of which about 15 minutes will be in the air.
