Filmed at West Houston Airport. The airplane is one of two that the EAA uses to take people up for rides. (https://www.eaa.org/en/eaa/flight-experiences/fly-the-ford-eaa-ford-tri-motor-airplane-tour)

You can really tell how immaculately maintained the engines are. I saw the plane start at least 3 times, and each time the engines would always fire up as soon as the pilot flipped on the magnetos.
