  • Description

    APOLLO II ASTRONAUTS NEIL ARMSTRONG, EDWIN ALDRIN, AND MICHAEL COLLINS CONTINUED THEIR SEVENTEEN-NATION GOODWILL TOUR TODAY (9 OCTOBER) WITH A VISIT TO THE NETHERLANDS CAPITAL OF AMSTERDAM.

    THEIR FIRST CALL WAS ON THE RULER OF THE COUNTRY, QUEEN JULIANA, WHO WITH PRINCE BERNHARD WELCOMED THEM AND THEIR WIVES AT THE ROYAL PALACE.

    FROM THE PALACE THEY WENT TO THE QUAYSIDE OF ONE OF AMSTERDAM'S NETWORK OF CANALS. THE CITY'S MAYOR WELCOMED THE THREE ASTRONAUTS, WHO THEN TOOK A TRIP BY A MORE LEISURELY MODE OF TRANSPORT THAN THE SPACE-SHIP THAT SHOT THEM THE FAME. THEY TOURED THE CANALS BY LAUNCH - BUT STILL RECEIVED THE SAME OVATION FROM ONLOOKERS THAT GREETED THEIR MOTORCADE THROUGH THE STREETS.

    LATER IN THE DAY, ARMSTRONG, ALDRIN AND COLLINS OPENED A SPACE EXHIBITION IN THE CITY, BEFORE FLYING ON FOR THE NEXT HALT IN THEIR TOUR - THE BELGIAN CAPITAL, BRUSSELS.
