Note the F-4 model.
Beautiful family portrait and that is clearly an early F-4 with small nose, low rear canopy and no windows between the canopies.

Apollo Astronauts at The Explorers Club Annual Dinner 2019.

A momentous occasion to get 8 of the ten surviving Apollo astronauts into once room to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landings.

What an honor! A definite career highlight.



L-R: Charles Duke (Apollo 16), Buzz Aldrin (Apollo 11), Walter Cunningham (Apollo 7), Al Worden (Apollo 15), Rusty Schweickart (Apollo 9), Harrison Schmitt (Apollo 17), Michael Collins (Apollo 11), Fred Haise (Apollo 13)

Missing are Jim Lovell (13) and David Scott (15).
