    PICK-UP HELICOPTER LANDING WITH ASTRONAUTS: STATEMENTS BY YOUNG AND COLLINS.



    TRANSCRIPT: YOUNG: "IT'S CERTAINLY A PLEASURE TO BE HERE. IT'S A REAL WONDERFUL FEELING TO BE PART OF THE NAVY'S AUTO-FLIGHT, BUT IT'S EVEN MORE TREMENDOUS TO SEE A LARGE PART OF THE NAVY WHEN YOU GET BACK FROM ONE. WE CERTAINLY ENJOYED IT - WE HAD A LOT OF FUN AND WE CERTAINLY APPRECIATE THE HARD WORK THAT EVERYBODY HAS DONE TO MAKE THIS MISSION A SUCCESS. THANK YOU.



    COLLINS: (INAUDIBLE).... A BEAUTIFUL JOB.
