USS Hornet Museum, Alameda
1:00 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012
Honor our veterans and celebrate Veteran’s Week November 5-11 at the USS Hornet Museum at Pier 3 in Alameda. The Hornet will pay a special tribute honoring late-astronaut Neil Armstrong Saturday, Nov. 10. Events at the ceremony include the NASA flight surgeon assigned to Apollo 11 as the featured speaker, the unveiling of the newly-renovated Apollo Exhibit, and music provided by the Hornet Band. Following the ceremony there will be a flyover by the Bay Bomber’s Squadron featuring Nanchang CJ-6A aircrafts. The Hornet, now a non-profit museum, has a special connection to Armstrong as it was the carrier that recovered the Apollo 11 crew following the successful moon landing in July 1969.
