Neil Alden Armstrong August 5, 1930 – August 25, 2012
A half-scale replica of the Apollo 11 Lunar Module marks the site in Warren, Ohio, where six-year-old Neil Armstrong took his first airplane flight. He later made history on July 20, 1969, when the Apollo 11 Lunar Module landed on the moon and U.S. Astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon. His famous words from that historic day, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” will live on for eternity.
The site is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is no admission charge. Get directions to First Flight here. Guided tours are available with advance reservations. Call Dan Mathey at 330-898-3456 or send inquiries to info@FirstFlightWarren.org.
