Default EAA Ford Trimotor

The EAA uses two trimotors for their air tours, a 4-AT and a 5-AT. Always reffered to as "Ford" they were built by the Stout Metal Airplane Company. Under Ford that became the Stout Metal Airplane Division of Ford. The EAA's Stout 4-AT-69 arrived at 5T6 (Dona Ana County International Jetport at Santa Teresa) and I was there to greet it. The 5-AT is in Florida this week, but the 4-AT will be at 5T6 for a week. It leaves next week for Tucson. The tour stops for both airplanes can be found at www.flytheford.com.
