I'm looking at my old computer hard disc and I have found these 3 photos of Apollo-11 crew portraits: one from 1989 (20th anniversary of that mission) and from 1999 (30th anniversary).

Do you have any more such this mission crew portrait, or can you give us to look at?

[1989]

[1999]

Good reminiscence,

Isn't it great to see Neil Armstrong letting rip with a real belly-laugh? If we listened to some people, we might not have thought it possible.

Those are great pics - all three men look like they are having a great time at the 1999 reunion. It almost seems to me as if the whole "Apollo 11 wasn't truly a crew" idea is overrated. Ok, maybe they didn't bond like other crews did, but they were professional enough to get the job done. There is a middle ground after all between being best friends and being bitter enemies.

I really can't wait until next year rolls around - the 40th anniversary should be something special. We're lucky that Buzz, Neil and Mike all appear to be in fine health.

I attended the event pictured in 1999; it was preceded by a breakfast for the crew and members of Congress followed by a ceremony where the crew was presented the Langley Medal by then Vice President Al Gore.

Great pictures Robert, and yes I'm jealous that I wasn't in attendance!!!! Imagine, the entire crew of the first lunar landing, and they are still with us. The only other lunar landing full crew remaining is A16. The 40th anniversary could be even better, and I'll bet that Robert will be present. Did he say Congress?
