I have just watched a fascinating six minute interview with Spacecraft Project Engineer Don Arabian on Steve Pyke's 'Moonbug' DVD.

Can anyone shed any light on what he did after Apollo and what is does nowadays?

Last I knew he was still living in Cape Canaveral. I stopped by for a visit back about 15 years ago.

I interviewed him at his home at the Cape in 2000. He didn't seem like he had plans to go anywhere as he was building a large boat in his backyard!

We had dinner with Don Arabian on Feb. 28, 2014 at the beach. He is great and still can talk a lot. Our grandson loves him. His boat has never touched water, his plane is sitting in a rocking chair, but his life is full. He illustrated two of my books, sure can draw.

Thank you for that wonderful post, it really made me smile. I have just this minute finished reading his NASA oral history interview and you can tell he can tell a good story.

Your Grandson will look back in years to come and be amazed at knowing Mr. Arabian, I imagine.

Thank you so much for that post!
