What it looked like to fly in a Ford Tri-Motor airplane

In this week's Outside section, the Source covered the Fly The Ford tour that is currently making a pit stop in Bend.

I got the chance to fly in the Tri-Motor on Thursday, and when I say it was an awesome experience – that might be underselling it.

While the "Tin Goose" was a giant leap forward for the world of aviation and travel, it's a very far out feeling from the aircrafts we know today. The flight offered an opportunity to see Bend from a totally different perspective and it was hard not to appreciate this piece of history soaring through the skies.

Take a look at our slideshow to see some of the sights from above Bend. The Tri-Motor flights run until May 12.
