Circa Early Launches….

Jul 11

In Friends, history at 11:15pm

Okay, so here’s a picture blast from the past….

Following on from last week, Hank Morgan sent me a snap of the two of us, prepping for launch, with the VAB in the background. We used everything, as you can see. When you put 20 remotes in the swamp, you get skinny on long glass, so we had Nikons, Canons, Hulchers, you name it. A staple for a launch were Nikon F2 hi speed cameras with a fixed pellicle mirror that could fire 10 fps, and rip through 100 foot rolls of chrome before you could say “go for launch.”

Okay, okay, the mustache didn’t work…..more tk….

Ah you’ve reached that wonderful point in life where you understand the wisdom of ages, and realize a moustache is something that just doesn’t do it for the history books!
