The 50th Air Capital EAA Fly In will feature a 1929 Ford Tri-Motor, which will be in Wichita Oct. 3-4, before moving to Newton on Oct. 5, the day of the fly-in.
Doug Range, president of Chapter 88 of the Experimental Aircraft Association, said the 50th Fly In at Newton City County Airport will offer a variety of planes and activities, starting at 7 a.m. and running until 9 p.m. Events include a breakfast, aircraft judging, rides in planes, activities for kids and an awards banquet.
But among the weekend’s highlights, Range said, would be the presence of the 1929 Ford Tri-Motor, which will be at Jabara Airport starting the afternoon of Oct. 3 and all day on Oct. 4. The plane will then go to Newton for the Saturday event. Rides on any of the three days on the Tri-Motor will be available for $70, if booked in advance, or $75 for walk-up rides, if the schedule allows for them.
