It took one day longer than expected but astronauts Neil Armstrong, Bob Gilliland and Air Force Ace Steve Ritchie visited the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on Sunday, March 14 as part of the Legends of Aerospace tour.

The Legends, who had just completed a journey overseas to visit and spend time with our troops serving our country across the world, discussed their personal experiences on the trip as well as their as aviation careers at a panel discussion and participated in a meet and greet with museum guests afterward.

The Legends group was scheduled to visit the Museum on Saturday but was forced to delay one day due to the heavy winds and bad weather that prevented them from getting to New York City on Saturday. The bad weather also prevented the group from arriving via helicopter landing on Intrepid's Flight Deck. But it certainly did not put any damper on there visit as guests were treated to a once-in-lifetime experience.

With the aviators unable to attend on Saturday, Intrepid held a rally to inform visitors of the Museum's efforts to acquire one of three NASA space shuttles that will be retired next year. NASA will be placing them in educational institutions around the country and Intrepid offers the perfect location to allow millions of visitors to see the shuttle each year.
