RIP John Young, Astronaut

Postby FlyingPenguin » Sun Jan 07, 2018 6:02 pm

One of my favorite John Young stories is that when he landed the Space shuttle after it's maiden flight, he walked around the orbiter, kicked the tires and said "I can't believe this was built by the lowest bidder!"

Rest in peace John. Hope you're still flying among the stars.
