Apollo 11 from AC Pilot News
It's hard to believe 40 years have flown by since the first manned lunar landing. I still remember watching Armstrong step out on the lunar surface on the big black and white cabinet TV that hot summer evening.

We've had a few good laughs over that.
It was one of those moments when it seemed everyone in the world was focused on one good thing. I soaked up all this astronaut stuff as a kid. It was great.
