Time capsule recovered from Tompkins Airport during construction

Construction crews working at Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport’s new terminal project discovered a time capsule that had been hidden in the previous terminal’s wall during the 1994 renovation.

“One of the most interesting things about the terminal expansion project was discovering the time capsule that was buried 25 years ago,” says Mike Hall, director of the airport.
