WHKP'S "Morning Man" Randy Houston and graphics expert Halle Lentini were on board a flight Thursday and said it was a beautiful day to be aboard that aircraft, which is said to be probably the first passenger airliner.  Randy took some great photos of the experience, too.  Thanks to the Asheville Regional Airport for allowing WHKP to be a part of this!

The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) is bringing the first-ever mass produced airliner to Asheville, NC and inviting you for a ride aboard our flight.

The Ford Tri-Motor 5-AT flew its first flight on December 1, 1928 and calls the Liberty Aviation Museum in Port Clinton, Ohio home today. Today, EAA and the Liberty Aviation Museum work together to showcase the historic aircraft around the country for all to enjoy.
