Glenn, Charlie, Mike, Jim, et al - You are correct!
This is astronaut Michael Collins. Selected as part of NASA's third group of fourteen astronauts in 1963, Collins flew in space twice. His first spaceflight was on Gemini 10 in 1966, in which he and Command Pilot John Young performed orbital rendezvous with two different spacecraft and undertook two extravehicular activities (EVAs, also known as spacewalks). On the 1969 Apollo 11 mission he became one of 24 people to fly to the Moon, which he orbited thirty times. He was the fourth person (and third American) to perform a spacewalk, the first person to have performed more than one spacewalk, and, after Young, who flew the command module on Apollo 10, the second person to orbit the Moon alone.

What an absolute treat to have Mr. Collins fly with us.

We are excited and honored to have this very special person receive flight instruction in the P-51 "Toulouse Nuts" yesterday. He is featured in the middle with chief pilot Rob Pinksten on the left signing his flight log. His pilot skills are out of this world! Any guesses? For those on crew yesterday - give folks a chance before spilling the beans. ...

American Heritage Museum Capital Campaign 2019

Since 1979, the Collings Foundation has led the way in the creation and operation of the nation’s most engaging living history events focused on aviation, military, and transportation history. Through nationwide programs like the Wings of Freedom Tour, the Vietnam Memorial Flight, and the annual local events at our Stow, Massachusetts headquarters, we have directly impacted millions of people.

The Collings Foundation is opening the new American Heritage Museum at the Collings Foundation campus in Stow, MA. Designed to world-class museum standards, the facility has on display over 85 of the most historically significant military vehicles and equipment from the Jacques M. Littlefield collection in an immersive and engaging environment that brings history alive for visitors. The 67,000 square foot facility is a major addition to our Stow, MA facility and the American Heritage Museum will host visitors from all over the world and be an educational facility that is open each week to school children, educators, researchers, and the general public.

Your Support is Needed!

Though the construction of the American Heritage Museum is complete, there is still a lot more to be done – and we need your help.

WWII European Theater Exhibits

The American Heritage Museum is designed to be different than other museums. While many museums focus on the major artifacts alone, the AHM focuses on the story of warfare as seen through the eyes of those who fought and the artifacts become the catalysts for discussion, education, and understanding. Through the hard work of our design and curatorial team, the immersive educational experience will be unique for all who visit.

Such an ambitious project comes at a cost – and your help is critical to our success!

The extensive research, design, production, and construction of the display environment requires time and capital to complete to transform the collection into the world-class vision of the American Heritage Museum. Your generosity provides us the ability to make each exhibit the most engaging and educational presentation possible.
