Such Modern, So Luxury
Sure, you've been on a Boeing 747 and maybe even an Airbus A380. But have you ever been on a Ford Tri-Motor 5-AT-B? I doubt it, seeing as they were the height of civilian passenger aircraft circa 1928. If you'd like to check out this luxurious relic, drive out to Double Eagle II Airport between April 6-9 from 8am-5pm. You can check out the “Tin Goose” for free or cough up $50 (kids) to $75 (adults) to actually take a ride. There will also be presentations and book-signing by Robert F. Kirk, author of Flying the Lindbergh Line: Then and Now. That will have you flyin' high. (Renée Chavez)
