SUNRISE IN THE SKY: Liz Bateson and Austin Pollack take historic flight over Greenville

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - We're no stranger to a little bit of aviation history here in North Carolina.

Over the weekend, another piece of history was on display at an Eastern Carolina airport. A 1929 Ford Tri-Motor plane came to Pitt-Greenville airport for passengers to learn a little more about the plane's history. Riders were able to even take about a 15-20 minute flight over Greenville and some parts of Pitt County.

The plane hit the skies well before in-flight wifi or satellite television on the seat in front of you. Every seat is a window and aisle seat, so it was easy to choose which type of seat you wanted. The plane can't quite travel as fast as the commercial airliners today. In fact, it has to land differently because of the speed.

A special thanks to the EAA Chapter 960 in Farmville and Pitt-Greenville Airport for giving us this opportunity!
