My father worked directly with Bill Bascom at Bell Aerospace in the 1960’s. I was fortunate to visit Mr. Bascom about 13 years ago.
My father Charles Martin worked as one of the chief electrical engineers on the Lunar Landing Research Vehicle (LLRV) at Bell Aerospace in Western New York. His direct supervisor was Bill Bascom. Mr. Bascom trained Neil Armstrong in preparation for the moon landing.
I visited Bill Bascom 11 or 12 years ago to pay homage to him at his home in the Buffalo New York area.
I remember being a child in the sixties when our family visited his family at their home.
What an awesome achievement.
RIP Neil Armstrong.
