Thomas

W. T. Thomas of Bath, New York, built 12 aeroplanes of his own design prior to World War I.  These were large, pusher-type biplanes typical of the 1907-09 period, showing Voisin and Farman design influence.  One of these aircraft survived in a barn until the 1960s, when it was acquired by the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome, restored and flown several times in 1965-66, registered N4720G.  Today the aircraft is on display in the Aerodrome’s museum hangars.
