So was the commander of the very first Apollo flight, Walter M. Schirra. Of the one
dozen human beings privileged to walk on the Moon, seven of them wore, or had
worn, the navy's wings of gold. Most remarkably, six of the seven commanders
chosen to pilot Apollo spacecraft down to lunar landings were naval aviators.
This included not only the first man to walk on the Moon but also the last man to
leave its surface to date, Eugene A. Cernan, in Apollo 17. In between Armstrong

Because if he did, the price for that mistake could well be the lives of the two crew
members of a downed F-4 Phantom jet fighter that the rescue force was en route
to save—or perhaps even his own life. As the lead Skyraiders arrived over the
estimated location, they discovered from the downed pilot that they were too late
to rescue the Phantom's backseater, who was already a North Vietnamese
prisoner of war destined for years of brutal imprisonment. Using his handheld '4'

In addition, it was believed that the onboard pilot would need a wide- angle
viewing system to permit simultaneous viewing of the landing site and the current
ground position. Turn rates for the parawing-payload combination up to 25° per
second were also considered necessary for the pilot to arrive at the desired
landing site. The present fixed-base simulator study was performed to determine
the ability of an onboard pilot to control an all-flexible parawing and advanced

When we sailed into Rhodes, I believe some of the sailors thought we would sail
between the legs of the 105-foot high statue of Apollo. Unfortunately it is long
gone, the victim of one of the earthquakes which come frequently in this part of
the world. We anchored out, of course, but the fleet landing where the liberty
boats embarked and disembarked was just along the main center of town. One
came to it through the breakwater with rampant harts on pillars where the statue
