Neil Armstrong passes away: One great loss for mankind
On October 17, 2008, the Frontiers of Flight Museum hosted an event to honor the 40th anniversary of the first flight of the Apollo program. A special guest was Neil Armstrong, who would walk on the moon the following year. He and several astronauts spoke on a panel I was honored to MC, and then I introduced him at a luncheon afterward.
