On September 29 an original 'Tommy' S-4B Scout, built in Ithaca in 1918 and recently restored by local volunteers, is scheduled to fly at the Tompkins County Regional Airport.

This talk by Jim Rundle tells the story of how an aircraft industry arose in Ithaca, just before and during the First World War, and how that new industry came to produce the 'Tommy', an advanced trainer used by the U.S. Army to train U.S. pilots bound for France.
