Fly the Ford Tri-Motor

April 6 – 9, 2017   8am – 5pm daily, weather permitting

Albuquerque Double Eagle II Airport

Join us as we celebrate the return of a 1928 Ford Tri-Motor 5-AT-B, an aircraft that helped develop the first commercial air service across the United States.  Bring the family and your camera; viewing the aircraft is free.

This relic of aviation history, affectionately called the “Tin Goose”, was the largest civilian passenger aircraft of its time.  Albuquerque shares this unique history, having served as a key stop along the 1920’s Transcontinental Air Transport (TAT) route.  Still remaining are concrete arrows, foundations for navigation beacons which guided pilots along the route.

Join us for history presentations with special guests, to accompany the Tri-Motor’s visit.

Fly the Ford!  $70 adults (advance);   $75 adults (walk-up);  $50 Children 17 & under
