Ford Tri-Motor Tour Stop, September, 2019
The Chapter‘s 4th Ford Tri-Motor Tour Stop was another total success. In four days, Pilot John Maxfield flew twenty-nine flights, with 329 passengers joining him. There was an excellent turnout of chapter volunteers from Wednesday morning when Dave Ross ferried the Tri-Motor from Port Clinton Airport to Wayne County Airport through Monday morning when John Maxfield and Debbie Redding flew the Ford back to Oshkosh for maintenance. In-between, Tour Stop Coordinator, Jeff Paden, made sure there were many chapter members pitching in to make this tour stop a pleasure for all our guests. Most of the volunteers were able to get a ride on the aircraft during the weekend. Amanda McGee, Wayne Co. Airport Manager, and Matt Long, Assistant Manager, were a pleasure to work with and were very accommodating while assisting with making our event a success.
