Details

This is an original press photo. The Thomas-Morse "Scout," nicknamed the "Tommy" by those men who flew it during World War I, was designed as an advance pursuit trainer. Exactly 100 S-4Bs were produced, with the first one delivered to the aviation section in November 1917. These were followed by 497 S-4Cs, a slightly modified version of the S-4B. The "Tommy" soon became known for its strength and maneuverability and was used at every advanced training field across the U.S. The "Tommy" on display, the only known S-4B in existence, is equipped with an 80 h.p. LeRhone engine in place of its original 100 h.p. Gnome engine. The airplane was placed on indefinite loan to the Air Force Museum by Mrs D.B. Woodard, Gotham, Wisconsin, in June 1963,Photo measures 10 x 8.25 inches. Photo is dated --NONE.
