With his spacesuit nearby, Gemini 12 command pilot Jim Lovell prepares for post-flight ceremonies aboard the recovery ship USS Wasp. Lovell and pilot Buzz Aldrin made a four-day flight to conclude the Gemini program in November 1966.

Haha, good to see Buzz's suit next to Jim's, easy to tell which is which even without the name tag, you can depend on Buzz to have pens poking out of his pocket.
Great image Ed.

I have a great photo taken by a crew member aboard the USS Yorktown showing the three Apollo 8 spacesuits hanging in a ship's refrigerator.
