For a brief time in the early 20th century, Ithaca was a thriving center of the young aviation industry. The Thomas-Morse Aircraft Corporation produced hundreds of the World War I-era “Tommy” S4 Scout planes right here in Ithaca.
Explore several key sites in Ithaca related to the Tommy plane on a guided bus tour on Friday, September 28, 2018 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Members of the Ithaca Aviation Heritage Foundation team who helped restore a 1918 Tommy plane will be on hand to tell the history of these aviation sites and their relation to the Tommy plane.
