On Friday 12 October fellow Flight team member Kelley Malcher and I went to a hotel near Heathrow airport to attend the drinks reception for the Autographica event and interviewed four NASA astronauts, Alan Bean, Gene Cernan and Al Worden of the Apollo programme and original Mercury Seven member Scott Carpenter. See Al Bean’s video here;

Later this week we will post more of the video interviews with the other astronauts and two Royal Air Force world war two veterans; one of whom played a role in the famous Dambusters mission and the other, the 35th man ouf of the tunnel at the Stalag Luft III prisoner of war camp, which became famous with the film The Great Escape.
