Recommended Posts


Apollo 8 astronaut Bill Anders, who snapped one of the most famous photographs taken in outer space, has died in a plane crash at the age of 90.Anders - who was a lunar module pilot on the Apollo 8 mission - took the iconic Earthrise photograph, one of the most memorable and inspirational images of Earth from space.The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) said the 90-year-old was flying a Beechcraft A A 45 - also known as a T-34. The agency said that the plane crashed about 80ft (25m) from the coast of Jones Island.

 I remember watching in 1968 their Apollo 8 Misson  take off on a black and white T.V.

MY Condolences to the Aviation community , his family and his NASA colleagues. 

Sad news.

Blue Skies.. Rest In Peace Sir.
