An Evening Celebration of Aviation Recap

On Friday, September 13th, the aviation community came together to honor and remember Ithaca native David Fairbanks, a recent inductee into Canada’s Aviation Hall of Fame. His friend, Tom Appleton, spoke of his fond memories with David during their career together in aviation. All proceeds of the dinner benefited the future endeavors of the Ithaca Aviation Heritage Foundation. Guests were able to tour the B-17 as they pleased, as well as enjoy the musical stylings of Johnny Russo and the Big Band Trio. With nearly 100 in attendance, dinner under the wing was a huge success! Thank you to our sponsors: Taughannock Aviation, Six Mile Creek Vineyard, Cornell University, Communiqué Design & Marketing & The History Center in Tompkins County! We hope to have a similar event next year. Check out the photos:
