July Meeting: Apollo 11 50th Anniversary

Join The Missouri Aviation Historical Society on Sunday, July 21st to celebrate the 50th anniversary of landing men on the moon. We will be showing the new film Apollo 11 by Todd Douglas Miller with newly discovered 65 mm footage and over 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings. Earl Mullins founder of the Space Museum in Bonne Terre, MO will bring rare Apollo memorabilia. Our two guests include Bill Nasse and Don Nagel who both worked closely on the Saturn V rocket. Bill Nasse worked with Autonetics Division of North American Aviation in 1961 as research & development for the Minuteman missile. Mr. Nagel was responsible for ensuring the correct installation of all major systems between the third stage of the Saturn booster and the Apollo space capsule.
