50 years ago today, the Apollo 11 mission took flight, beginning their journey to the moon. The Armstrong Air and Space Museum wanted to highlight this out of the world accomplishment with something special. The front yard of the museum became a stand-in for the Kennedy Space Center, as the United States began to fulfill their promise to be first on the moon. The rockets may have been at a smaller scale, but the excitement level was high at exactly 9:32 a.m. Tuesday morning for the reenactment of the Saturn V model taking flight, thanks to the Wright Stuff Rocketeers.
