The Liberty Aviation Museum in Port Clinton has acquired a flyable model 5-AT-B Ford Tri-Motor, arriving in the hanger July 9, 2014.  The plane, called the City of Wichita, renamed City of Port Clinton, was purchased from the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum located in McMinnville, Oregon, where the plane was grounded for the last 9 years. The plane will now find its home in Port Clinton.

The plane was flown in by Ed Rusch and Cody Welsh over 4 days, beginning the trip flying through the Rocky Mountains and making stops in Idaho, Nebraska, Iowa, and Illinois.  Ed has been flying Ford Tri-Motors out of Erie-Ottawa International Airport since 1973, and was the pilot of the last commercial Tri-Motor flight commissioned January 1, 1986, out of the airport.  Ed also played a large part in getting the City of Wichita airworthy, putting hours in over the last six weeks for repairs and reinstalling the engines.
