Ford Trimotor flight

Two weeks ago the Local EAA Chapter 620, helped bring two vintage aircraft to Miami: A 1929 Ford Trimotor and a 1943 Boeing B-17
I was part of the organization and a volunteer in the field at Miami Executive Airport - KTMB (formerly Kendall-Tamiami Airport)

It was a fun-filled weekend, helping marshal the Ford Trimotor, collecting ticket from paying passengers for their flight and of course taking pictures.

Here are some of the pictures of the Ford Trimotor and my flight in it. The B-17 images will follow later.

It was a privilege to be able to fly in this piece of living history of aviation. We plan to bring her back to Miami next January. If you come and visit, or if you see the Ford flying in your area, give it a try! You'll love it.
