A Is For ..... Astronaut, The Alphabet Project

I'm linking this post up with The Alphabet Project which is being run by Charly Dove, so here goes

A Is For .... Astronaut

Whilst on our honeymoon to Florida in 2006, we decided that as well as going to the Disney Parks and Universal Studios we'd also go to The Kennedy Space Centre, Cape Canaveral.

There is so much to do and see there I don't know where to start but that might be for another time to be honest this post is about Astronaut, or more particular our meet and greet session with a proper astronaut.

Our meet and greet session was with Jon Andrew McBride who was the lead chase pilot on the maiden voyage of the Space Shuttle Columbia, this is one of many NASA assignments his been included in.

We had an awesome afternoon meeting Jon and finding out about his involvement with NASA and all the assignments he was involved with. 

Well that was my A Is ..... In the Photo Project

Stay tuned for B is ......
