The Ithaca Aviation Heritage Foundation invites you to join us Wednesday, August 29 @7pm at Cinemapolis for Tommy's Centennial Flight Fundraiser! We'll watch "A Romance of the Air," the 1918 silent film set during World World I starring our beloved Tommy plane. Wharton Studios described the film as, "Brave heroes and heroins! Despicable spies! A war hero falsely accused...and sentenced to death! How will it all end?"
Directly following the film, we'll have a Q&A session with one of the original founders of the Ithaca Aviation Heritage Foundation (IAHF) organization. We will talk about the history of the Tommy Comes Home Project, future plans for Tommy, and exciting details about the upcoming Centennial Flight! All proceeds from the night goes towards the project and Tommy's Centennial Flight event which is FREE on Saturday, September 29. Don't miss out on history in the making! Stick around after the Q&A session for a Meet-and-Mingle opportunity in the lobby with IAHF Board and Committee members.

This screening is brought to you in partnership with The History Center in Tompkins County
