Williams.” In very fine condition. Williams, a member of Astronaut Group 3, served as the backup pilot for Gemini 10 and was then slated as the LMP for the Apollo 9 backup crew (the eventual prime crew for Apollo 12), but died in a NASA T-38 jet trainer crash near Tallahassee, Florida, in 1968, before ever traveling into space.
