'The Tin Goose' spreads its wings over Sandusky

A vintage Ford Tri-Motor plane that has landed in Sandusky will offer riders a bird's-eye view of Lake Erie all weekend.

The plane, nicknamed "The Tin Goose," is offering 15-minute flights from Griffing Sandusky Airport until Monday.

Each flight loops around Cedar Point and the islands before returning to the runway.

Ron and Dee Carlson of Grand Blanc, Mich., were two of the first fliers Thursday after the plane arrived. They traveled here to fly in "The Tin Goose" for their 10th wedding anniversary.

"It was on our bucket list," Dee said. "The weather was perfect, and we could see everything up there. It's something we won't forget."

Flights are $50 for EAA members and $60 for nonmembers. Walkup rides are available as space permits.
