Broadway actor Jeantique Oriol plays Banning and Broadway actor Lamar Cheston is his mechanic, Thomas Cox Allen. They'll take the stage and tell their remarkable story.
Banning attended ISU in 1920-1922. He and Allen were the first African American airmen to complete a transcontinental flight. He built his own plane, "Miss Ames," out of the scraps of his mentor's crashed plane. He was instrumental in establishing the Tuskegee Airmen.
