Collings Foundation

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.

Collings Foundation

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. ...
