The Tin Goose flies again

Island Airlines and the 1929 Ford Tri-Motor “Tin Goose” are flying once again out of  Keller Field /Erie Ottawa County Airport to provide air service to Lake Erie’s Western Islands as it did between 1933 and 1985.

Members of the Tri-Motor Heritage Foundation recently climbed into the Flight Simulators at the Liberty Aviation Museum and experienced a virtual flight of the famous airlines tradition route to the islands.  Some of the members who actually flew the original planes on a few occasions marveled at the 360 degree high tech simulation.

Between now and April 7th the Flight Simulators will be on hand to allow visitors a chance to fly the Tin Goose, a P-51 Mustang and others as time permits.
