EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012: Three Trimotors = Nine Motors

By Fred Harl
 EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012 featured three trimotors - two Fords and a Junkers JU-52.  The Swiss-based 1939 Junkers JU-52, one of three JU-Air aircraft and sponsored by Rimowa Luggage, made its transatlantic flight to North America for its appearance at EAA AirVenture 2012.  Two Ford trimotors, the EAA's 4-AT-E and the Kalamazoo Aviation History Museum's 5-AT-C were giving flights during the week.  Look for the EAA's Ford Trimotor at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2013 and on tour this year at various EAA Chapter events.  Here are some views of the three trimotors in our nine motors collection:
