My ride on a 1929 Tin Goose Ford tri-motor airplane

My husband adores any kind of airplane and riding in a 1929 Tin Goose couldn't have made a better date. We made plans to go as soon as we heard that the Ford tri-motor was coming to Knoxville. Stepping onto the airplane was stepping onto history. Only two of this type of aircraft remain and this one has been used in Public Enemies and other films. In fact, my husband sat in a seat previously occupied by Johnny Depp - that's probably the only thing they have in common!



Organizers also arranged for an antique car show along with the Tin Goose. The footage shows some Ford Model A cars along with some others. I've also got shots of the plane and the flight. Check it out.
