Many in Shreveport Traveled Back in Time in a 1920s Ford Plane
What Was Up With that Old Airplane Flying All Over Shreveport-Bossier This Weekend?
I had a friend say that his friends and he were playing golf on Saturday and kept getting distracted by the "loud low flying airplane". Why was there a plane flying low all over Shreveport-Bossier this weekend?
Did You Know There Was a Ford Tri-Motor Tour in Shreveport This Past Weekend?
If you didn't know, don't feel bad. No one really knew about the time machine and the only reason I stumbled upon it was that I decided to grab breakfast at the restaurant inside of the Downtown Shreveport Airport.
Tickets Were Being Sold for $85 Per Person.
The proceeds went towards The Experimental Aircraft Association which is a non-profit organization dedicated to sharing "the Spirit of Aviation" with everyone.
The Liberty Aviation Museum’s 1928 Ford Tri-Motor 5-AT-B isn't just a beauty, it still flys and is on tour with the Experimental Aircraft Association. You can check out the airplane for free when they come to town and if you're curious enough you can ride in it.
"Recall the energy, passion, and excitement of the Roaring ’20s by flying aboard the Ford Tri-Motor. Known as the first luxury airliner, the Ford Tri-Motor redefined world travel and marked the beginning of commercial flight."
Keep an eye out, this may be a common experience that we can all share next year. According to the EAA, this tour follows good weather and they want to come back to Shreveport soon.
