Re: Armstrong the LEM pilot

Armstrong was not the Lunar Module Pilot. He was the Commander.

Aldrin was the Pilot.

Yes, even if Armstrong did the flying. This is recorded history. RTAM*.

And Tomorrow I'm going to a dinner dance at the Cradle of Aviation Museum where we will all attempt to evoke the 60s ambiance of the original Great Night in the company of real astronauts.

Scheduled Guests:

- Walt Cunningham, Apollo 7

- Rusty Schweickart, Apollo 9

- Fred Haise, Apollo 13

- Charlie Duke, Apollo 16

- Harrison Schmitt, Apollo 17

- Gerry Griffin, Apollo Flight Director

- Milt Windler, Apollo Flight Director

A veritable EVA of Astronauts.
