The Ford Tri Plane was in Hutchinson, Ks the last three days. So I went out to see it and got to ride on it. Then they ask if I would bring my Model T out and take a picture.
Great opportunity ! What price were they charging for rides in the Tri-Motor ?
Watching The Roosevelts on PBS. It appears that FDR flew to accept his nomination for President in a Tri-Motor.
75.00 was the price. it was worth every cent!
Mike I could hear your smile/grin when you called me this afternoon. Glad you took my advice and took that ride. Jerry
I flew in a Tri-Motor a few years ago near Iola during their Military Show........I got to sit in the co-pilot's seat.......
The cost then was $60 so they haven't raised the price much considering what gas costs now and what it cost then.
I got to fly in it when it was at Hunnington, IN this past June. A friend that was with me also got to sit in the co-pilot's seat but was turned over the controls halfway through the flight.He is a pilot and captain in the Michigan Air Patrol. The pilot told us he was a former T owner and showed us the photos of his '14 Touring car. Was like flying in a T with wings on it.Seemed to go about as fast as my '25 Touring.
