LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Don't miss your opportunity to experience the golden age of aviation history! 

The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is bringing the first-ever mass-produced airliner to Lubbock, TX and inviting you for a ride aboard the flight. 

The Ford Tri-Motor 5-AT flew its first flight on December 1, 1928 and calls the Liberty Aviation Museum in Port Clinton, Ohio home today.  

The aircraft is at the Hub City Aviation Academy Hangar at 6004 North Cedar Ave. in Lubbock. The tours begin at 1:30 p.m.

Flight Rates are $75 for adults and $50 for children 17 and under. Plenty of walk-up space available! Call onsite crew at 920-379-8339 for more information.

Revenues from the Ford Tri-Motor tour help cover maintenance and operations costs for the aircraft and aid our ambition to keep the "Tin Goose" flying for many years to come.
