Has anyone had the chance to ask EECOM John Aaron for an autograph lately? I was wondering what his signing habits were? Does he sign freely or would he rather not sign?

I am hoping to meet one of my biggest heroes, John Aaron, at the Seattle Museum of Flight. Anyone have any good ideas on items for him to sign (if I'm lucky enough to get the chance)?

I was thinking maybe the Apollo 13 Mission Reports book, any other ideas?

I had the chance to meet Aaron last fall when he was inducted in to the Oklahoma Aviation and Space Hall of Fame.

Here are some photos of him at that event as well as an article I posted.

I asked him to sign my copy of "Apollo: Race to the Moon" as well as an 8x10" color print of the Mission Control emblem. I purchased the emblem print from Farthest Reaches and it had already been signed by Sy Liebergot. They also sell the same print that has been signed by Gene Kranz.

Aaron was also the EECOM for the Apollo 12 launch when the vehicle got hit by lightning. Aaron's decisions there helped to keep Apollo 12 from coming home early. So if you have anything related to the Apollo 12 launch...
