Ford Motor Company built 199 Tri-Motors from 1926 through 1933. EAA’s model 4-AT-E was number 146 off Ford’s innovative assembly line and first flew on August 21, 1929. It was sold to Pitcairn Aviation’s passenger division, Eastern Air Transport, whose paint scheme is replicated on Experimental Aircraft Association’s Tri-Motor. This Ford Tri-Motor NC8407 is the flagship of EAA’s Pioneer Airport, a part of the EAA Aviation Museum experience.
