Legends of Airpower

Buzz Aldrin

Everyone knows the name Buzz Aldrin from the historic Apollo 11 landing. But before NASA, this famed astronaut was a Sabre pilot in Korea, and shot down three Mig-15s. After the war, he proved his mental prowess by knocking them dead at MIT, and – Buzz on the moon -jumping headfirst into the space program. Even today Aldrin just won’t quit, working tirelessly to make space travel available to everyone, not just legends.
