Despite the windy day we got a couple of neat visitors! Both are members of the 2003 National Air Tour. The first is a Travel Air, model A-6000 that was built in 1929. The second is the sole remaining, of only two ever built, Bushmaster. While it looks like a Ford Tri-Motor, it was actually an attempt in the mid 1950s to resurrect that design by a California company for use as bush planes. (That's our Line Service Manager Nick in the Bushmaster.)
