Neil Armstrong Autograph On Banquet Program, Signed In 1979, Apollo 11 Astronaut For Sale
Here's an autograph from Neil Armstrong on a banquet program from 1979. I am selling this item for a friend. In 1979 my friend was working for Rosemount Inc, an Aerospace company and
sponsor of the event attended by Armstrong. Rosemount invited my friend to
attend the Armstrong event. He worked then (and still does) in design
engineering and has worked on sensors for several aircraft like the 747 and
space programs such as the Space Shuttle and satellites.The autograph appears to have been made using a ballpoint pen and is in blue ink. The program measures 5 1/2" by 8 1/2". There is light wear to the edges of the program but no holes or tears. There is a crease down the middle from where it had been folded (see last two pics). That crease does not interrupt the autograph. The photographs on make the program look whiter than it is (camera flash). The front of the program features a picture of Neil in a suit and tie and reads, "AIAA SPRING BANQUET & MIDWEST STUDENT PAPER COMPETITION, Banquet Speaker, NEIL ARMSTRONG, FIRST MAN ON THE MOON". The inside pages have a biography of Neil Armstrong and a list of the authors of the 1979 Region V Student Conference Papers. These students were from the the following universities: Colorado State, Iowa State, Kansas, Minnesota, Wichita State and the USAF Academy. The back page has a list of contributors that include: Ball Brothers Research Corp., Beech Aircraft (Boulder) Corp., Beech Aircraft (Wichita) Corp., Bendix Corp., Cessna Aircraft Co., Emerson Electric Co., Fluidyne Engineering Corp., Frontier Airlines, Garrett Corp., Gates Learjet Corp., General Dynamics, General Electric Corp., Gull Engineering, Honeywell Inc., McDonnell Douglas Corp., Nelson Culson Assoc., Rockwell International Collins Radio Div., Rosemount Inc., Sheldahl, Inc., Sverdrup and Parcel & Assoc. Inc., Boeing Wichita Co. and Westinghouse Corporation. The bottom of the back page reads, "AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF AERONAUTICS AND ASTRONAUTICS TWIN CITIES SECTION". The item does not have a COA but I guarantee that this is an authentic autograph from Neil Armstrong. Any questions let me know. Thank you!Here's a bit of info about Neil Armstrong, if any is needed...Neil Alden Armstrong (August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012) was an American astronaut and the first person to walk on the Moon. He was also an aerospace engineer, naval aviator, test pilot, and university professor. Before becoming an astronaut, Armstrong was an officer in the U.S. Navy and served in the Korean War. After the war, he earned his bachelor's degree at Purdue University and served as a test pilot at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics High-Speed Flight Station, now known as the Dryden Flight Research Center, where he logged over 900 flights. He later completed graduate studies at the University of Southern California.A participant in the U.S. Air Force's Man in Space Soonest and X-20 Dyna-Soar human spaceflight programs, Armstrong joined the NASA Astronaut Corps in 1962. He made his first space flight, as command pilot of Gemini 8, in 1966, becoming NASA's first civilian astronaut to fly in space. On this mission, he performed the first docking of two spacecraft, with pilot David Scott.Armstrong's second and last spaceflight was as mission commander of the Apollo 11 moon landing, in July 1969. On this mission, Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin descended to the lunar surface and spent two and a half hours exploring, while Michael Collins remained in lunar orbit in the Command Module. Along with Collins and Aldrin, Armstrong was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Richard Nixon; in 1978, President Jimmy Carter presented Armstrong the Congressional Space Medal of Honor in 1978; he and his former crew mates received the Congressional Gold Medal in 2009.Armstrong died in Cincinnati, Ohio, on August 25, 2012, at the age of 82, after complications from coronary artery bypass surgery.
