Experience history in action.
- This was the first US passenger airliner!
- Built by Ford Motor Company in 1928 with 3 engines to build passenger confidence, and with steering wheels in the cockpit.
- Only 5 ford TriMotors are still flying in the world … and one is coming to us!
- This airplane initiated air travel that we know today, inspiring the first passenger terminals, paved runways, and airport hotels.
- The simulator and static display were a big hit, thanks to Joel Avery & Adrian Favareille.
- The ramp ran without a hitch, thanks to Ed Gregory, Mike Lella & Leon Leibster, who also doubled as our photographer.
- Ground operations and all the accompanying paper work ran smoothly, thanks to Janet Gregory, Dennis Smith, Jim “JT” Thomas, John Williams & of course Ed Sunday, who coordinates EVERYTHING.
- Special thanks to pilots who not only donated their time but their aircraft and fuel. Hopefully the smiles and excitement made for a great payback. Thanks to Dave Berger, Wayne Handley, Jeff Kerns, Dale Mueller, Erik Segerstrom, Diana Sunday & Greg Triplett.
