Come see Tommy fly! The Ithaca Aviation Heritage Foundation (IAHF) cordially invites you to be a part of Tommy's Centennial Flight Celebration on Saturday, September 29, 2018. The Thomas-Morse S-4 Scout was an advanced high-speed trainer designed for the U.S. Army Air Corps built and manufactured in Ithaca, NY. The Scout played an enormous role in the early years of aviation and became affectionately known throughout the aviation world as “Tommy.” IAHF’s Tommy Come Home Project was conceived more than 15 years ago, and has fulfilled the dream of bringing a Tommy home, restoring it to flying condition and flying it on its 100th birthday. We'll be celebrating with a centennial flight at the Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport - a historic event you won't want to miss!
The event is FREE and open to the public! The celebration will take place the afternoon of Saturday, September 29 from 2pm to 5pm and will feature Tommy flying around the airport, family-friendly activities, local food vendors, stories about Tommy, and more!
IAHF, a not-for-profit organization, acquired an original 1918 Thomas-Morse Scout in 2009. Throughout the past 10 years, our team of volunteers has devoted countless hours to restoring our Tommy to flying condition.
