Vintage glossy 10 x 8 photo of Edward G. Gibson, Owen K. Garriott, and Harrison H. Schmitt in front of a jet during their training at Williams Air Force Base, signed in ink by all three. Reverse bears an affixed press caption and typed collector's notation, "Scientists astronauts autograph this photo for us at Williams Air Force Base - Arizona - on their graduation day, 8/6/66. They used our 'presidential pen.'" In fine condition, with surface impressions from typed notations on the reverse. After being selected as members of NASA's first astronaut-scientist class, the three completed a 53-week course of intensive jet pilot training at Williams Air Force Base in Arizona. A superb, early piece.
