FLINT TWP. — The Ford Company built 199 4-AT-E planes between the years 1926 and 1923 – and starting May 12, at the Flint Bishop International Airport, the public will have a rare opportunity to ride in one.
Flint in the first stop on the antique airliner’s tour through the eastern U.S. Flint Bishop International Airport will host flights through May 15, for $75 a person.
Advanced tickets are $70 for adults and $50 for children 17 years old and under, though registration is not required. The plane can carry up to ten passengers, and the flights usually last ten to twenty minutes.
The 4-AT-E is one of eight models that can still operate in the air and has been restored and maintained by the Experimental Aircraft Association in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. There are only 16 of its kind left in the world.
