The National Aviation Hall of Fame (NAHF) was founded in 1962 as a non-profit corporation in Dayton, Ohio. Neil Armstrong was inducted to the NAHF in 1979.

I was wondering if anyone can advise me where I might find photos or a write up of the event (copies of speech/press articles or similar). I have asked the museum directly and am waiting for a reply but wondered given that this was some time ago if there maybe a record of it elsewhere. Thanks.

Neil Armstrong was inducted to the NAHF in 1979 — exactly ten years to the day that he walked on the moon. A photo of the plaque that was presented to Mr. Armstrong is attached. It measures about 24 by 18 inches.

I am still wondering if anyone can advise me where I might find photos or a write up of the event (copies of speech or similar, photos, press cuttings, etc.).

I have asked the NAHF museum directly and will write to the Neil Armstrong Museum at his home town, but given that this was some time ago I am hoping that someone at cS might have more info.
