Flying in Style in the Ford Tri-Motor!  The 1928 airliner coming to Springfield was the height of flying luxury 85 years ago. That sensation is coming back as a rare 1928 Ford Tri-Motor 5-AT airliner, operated by the
Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) in Oshkosh, Wis., makes a stop locally as part of its nationwide tour. The aircraft will be at Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport, Stellar Aviation FBO.

All are invited to see and fly in this historic aircraft, which is owned by Liberty Aviation Museum of Port Clinton, Ohio, and operated under a lease agreement with EAA for the national tours.

Spectating and photos outside the aircraft will be available and free between flights throughout the weekend.
