Description


Brilliant color semi-glossy 24 x 20 photo of Bean carrying two sub packages of the Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP) during the first Apollo 12 EVA, signed in the lower border in black felt tip, "Alan LaVern Bean, Apollo 12, Lunar Module Pilot, November 19-20, 1969," who adds a lengthy inscription above: "'When I was a boy, I dreamed of flying airplanes, and I built models from Balsa wood. By the time I was in high school, model airplanes of all shapes and sizes were hanging by thin wires from the ceiling of my room. Airplanes were the last thing I would see before falling asleep at night. I dreamed of flying higher than the highest cloud and faster than the fastest wind. As I grew older, the dream grew stronger. It followed me as I completed flight training, became a jet pilot flying off aircraft carriers, and when as a test pilot and then as as an astronaut, I trained to rocket to the moon. And here, as I look over the 'magnificent desolation' of the lunar surface, boys and girls on Earth are building model rockets, dreaming of flying higher than the moon and faster than a shooting star.'" In fine condition.
