More Astronauts Confirmed To Attend Apollo Reunion At AirVenture

Buzz Aldrin, Harrison Schmitt Will Be At The Event July 28

NASA astronauts Buzz Aldrin (Apollo 11) and Harrison “Jack” Schmitt (Apollo 17), representing the crews who made the space program’s first and last lunar landings, will attend EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017 as part of the Apollo program reunion on Friday, July 28.

Previously confirmed astronauts attending the event include Frank Borman (Apollo 8), Walt Cunningham (Apollo 7), Fred Haise (Apollo 13), Jim Lovell (Apollo 8 and Apollo 13), and Al Worden (Apollo 15).

The Apollo program’s story is one of teamwork and tremendous achievement, each mission serving as a tribute to the accomplishments of those who had served on previous crews. The reunion is expected to be the largest gathering of Apollo astronauts at Oshkosh since the memorable 1994 Salute to Apollo program that brought together 15 of the men who were the faces of the American effort to put men on the moon.
 
“This will be a rare, unforgettable gathering of the people who met the challenge of flying to the moon and safely returning, representing hundreds of thousands of individuals who contributed to its success,” said Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member benefits. “You may never get another opportunity to see these people in person and up close, as you will at Oshkosh this summer.”
