Brad Flamm shares the recent AASHTO Facebook post about the first African American flight attendant in the US, Ruth Carol Taylor.

“I have fond memories of the tiny two-gates Tompkins County airport — my wife-to-be flew into it several times when I was a grad student there in the early 90s — and now I have a second reason to think fondly of it!”
