Colors of the Season and History Come Alive Through EAA's Fall Color Flights

Flights on historic Ford Tri-Motor at EAA’s Pioneer Airport on Oct. 9-10

EAA AVIATION CENTER, OSHKOSH, Wis. — (Sept. 22, 2010) — One of the most unique and popular autumn color tours in Wisconsin returns Oct. 9-10 as the EAA AirVenture Museum hosts its annual Fall Color Flights based at the museum’s Pioneer Airport.

The extended 25-minute aerial tours in EAA’s historic 1929 Ford Tri-Motor will include the scenic Lake Winnebago area and east-central Wisconsin countryside, which traditionally reaches its peak color in mid-October. The Ford Tri-Motor, nicknamed “The Tin Goose,” was the first mass-produced airliner in the world. The Ford Motor Company built 199 Tri-Motors from 1926 to 1933.

Flights depart Pioneer Airport every 45 minutes from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9, and 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 10. Cost $65 for adults and $55 for children ages 3-17, while children age 2 and under are free. All flights are weather permitting.

Pre-booking is recommended by visiting www.airventuremuseum.org or by calling the EAA AirVenture Museum at (920) 426-6880. Pioneer Airport gift certificates are also valid for Fall Color Flights.
