Description


Air Force pilot (1930-1964) selected as part of the third group of astronauts. He was killed on October 31, 1964, when a goose smashed through the cockpit canopy of his T-38 Talon jet trainer. He ejected from the aircraft, but was too close to the ground for his parachute to open properly. Block of four 4-cent stamps honoring the Range Conservation, 4 x 2.25, signed in black ink, "Ted Freeman, Captain, USAF." The block is affixed to a 6.5 x 3.75 mailing envelope. In fine condition, with light brushing to the ink.
