Armstrong to Buck Rogers: “Only two pilots went from the X-15 program to the Astronaut Program. The other is Joe Engle”

TLS, one page, 8.5 x 11, University of Cincinnati letterhead, May 7, 1979. Letter to his good friend Buck Rogers. In full: “Only two pilots went from the X-15 program to the Astronaut Program. The other is Joe Engle, who has not flown in orbit, but flew several of the Space Shuttle landing flights last year and is expected to command some of the forthcoming shuttle flights. Enclosed is an X-15 booklet which you may enjoy keeping.” In fine condition, with a paperclip impression to top edge and a few light creases and wrinkles. An interesting piece of correspondence between two names closely related with space travel. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
