The post-Apollo 11 Honeysuckle Creek Staff Photo



Updated scans

Most of the team who brought you Neil Armstrong’s first step.

In early August 1969, about two weeks after Apollo 11,
most of the Honeysuckle team assembled outside the Operations Building,
with the antenna as backdrop.

Hamish Lindsay took three group photos:

Photo 3.

Unlike the ‘classic’ photos above, this one includes the entire Honeysuckle dish.

The perspective from closer to the Ops Building gives better vertical separation of the team members.

with John Saxon added in

And one more...

This one has John Saxon “included” – he missed out on being there for the actual photo. (Digital manipulation by Mike Dinn.)
