Apollo, Segment 6010 (in the Documentary section of Open Video Project). [Category: News]

This clip talks so glowingly about a NASA contractor called Langley that it could have been from an industrial film, but I don’t think so. It does have some interesting footage of different kinds of experimental aircraft, including a horribly impractical single-user craft that has helicopter rotors underneath where the pilot is standing. One of the more interesting of the Apollo clips.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
