I would like to thank Gary Clinton for putting together this presentation on the Astro. Gary was approached and asked if, with this being the 50th Anniversary of Man landing on the moon, he would do a presentation. Of course, the Astro was a natural choice.
Gary went thru the chronology of the Mercury space program and covered the information that was presented by Bob Gaddis in his chapter dedicated to the Astro.
Gary also brought a wealth of early Randall Astros for the presentation.
I can't help but think that this gathering of Astros could be a grouping of Early Astros that hasn't been seen in a very long time.
We had 3 Astros that were made and sent to NASA from 1960-1962.
Also present were 2 Scaleless Astros without thong holes. Rounding out the field were 2 brown Micarta Astros, including John Cheeks 1965 Astro.
I will follow up with pictures.
