Don’t miss your opportunity to experience the golden age of aviation history!
The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is bringing the first-ever mass produced airliner to O’Neill and is inviting you for a ride aboard our flight.
From 1926 through 1933, Ford Motor Company built 199 Tri-Motors. EAA’s model 4-AT-E was the 146th off Ford’s innovative assembly line and first flew on August 21, 1929. It was sold to Pitcairn Aviation’s passenger division, Eastern Air Transport, whose paint scheme is replicated on EAA’s Tri-Motor.
