    NASA Manned Flight Awareness Posters: Collection of Thirteen Originals Comparing Apollo to Historical Aviation Landmarks, 1968. We believe this to be a complete set. They measure 8" x 10.5" and each features text and images regarding a different historic date in aviation history, comparing that technology to that of the then-upcoming Apollo flights. As follows: December 17, 1903, Wright Brothers flight; July 30, 1909, War Department's first airplane test; October 26, 1909, First U.S. Army pilots; September 17, 1911, Vin Fiz first transcontinental flight; March 17, 1917, Women constructing Vought VE-7s; May 16, 1919, Nancy 4 first transoceanic flight; July 5, 1919, Caproni's failed Model 60 Houseboat; February 22, 1921, First transcontinental night mail flying; November 12, 1921, Frank Hawks and Earl Daugherty's first rendezvous; March 16, 1926, Robert Goddard's launch of the first liquid propellant rocket; May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh's solo non-stop trans-Atlantic flight; July 22, 1930, Reichers and Black's 313 hour flight without a landing; and October 23, 1934, Jean and Jeanette Piccard's first stratospheric balloon flight piloted by a woman. A very interesting group of items that should appeal to both aviation and space collectors. Excellent.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
