Default Ford meets Ford

Hi all,

I thought you might be interested is seeing a couple of photos that I took of my 1931 deluxe coupe alongside EAA's 1929 Ford Tri-motor aeroplane, when it visited Jackson, Michigan last month.

I agree, that's a very nice calendar picture! I hope you took a ride in the Trimotor. It's a lot of fun, especially in the copilot's seat.

The Tri-Motor was at the Greater Rockford Airport last weekend. It is a must and the EAA caters to Model A guys....

If you plan to take the ride in the Ford Tri-Motor here is a video of the typical flight.

What great pictures!

Ours were not as good - we had to rush in to get the shots between refueling and the next flight.

We got to visit the Tri-Motor in Elkhart, IN in early July. Better yet, got to take my son on his first EVER flight. What better plane than a Ford Tri-Motor!

What engines are on that plane? They sure don't look like a Henry design.

Pratt & Whitney's. This Ford Tri-Motor was outfitted with two 450 HP engines and one 550 HP engine, it became the most powerful Model 4-AT ever flown.
