A vintage 1928 Ford Tri-Motor visited Butler County Airport on July 9 through 12, 2015. Rides were offered to the public on this historic example of the airline industry with a total of 47 flights made over the duration of the event. The event started with a photo op featuring the Tri-Motor and a line up of vintage Fords from a local Butler County Ford Car Club.  See the history of the Ford Tri-Motor below as was published at the time of our chapter's special event.
