The EAA Ford
Tri-Motor is coming to Air Group One at Gillespie Field!

February 26 - March 1st 2015
Flight Available Every Day


Experience the golden age of aviation and take a flight in EAA’s immaculate 1929 Ford Tri-Motor, giving passengers an opportunity to travel back to the early days of commercial flight.

Affectionately dubbed the “Tin Goose” after its distinct all-metal look, the Ford Tri-Motor is commonly known as the first mass-produced airliner from aviation’s formative years. A flight on EAA’s Ford Tri-Motor is a flight back to an era where air travel was considered a luxury.

Climb aboard one of the first mass-produced airliners and step back in time to aviation’s golden age.  A flight on EAA’s Ford Tri-Motor is a flight back to an era where air travel was considered a luxury.
