Apollo Veterans tour Altair Mock-Up

Dr. Neil Armstrong (Left - Apollo 11 cmdr.), Dr. Harrison "Jack" Schmitt (Center Right - Apollo 17 LM cmdr.) & Captain Gene Cernan (Right - Apollo 17 cmdr.) tour Constellation Altair Lunar Lander mock-up. Rarely do we notice history until it becomes history. That's Wayne Ottinger between Dr. Armstrong and Dr. Schmitt, who worked with all three in engineering the Apollo Lunar Module.
