Caption: President Kennedy departing Cape Canaveral. Footage of the return of the helicopter (designated Marine One) bringing US President John F. Kennedy back to Air Force One following his tour of NASA facilities at Merrit Island, near Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA, on 16 November 1963. Kennedy had toured the facilities by car and air, being briefed on the Gemini and Apollo programmes by NASA officials and scientists. He had also travelled by helicopter to the ship USS Observation Island to view a submarine launch of a Polaris nuclear missile. Exiting the helicopter, Kennedy is accompanied by senior military officers and is met by NASA Administrator James Webb and Deputy NASA Administrator Hugh Dryden as he prepares to leave. This was Kennedy's third visit to Cape Canaveral, taking place a week before his assassination. The site was renamed the Kennedy Space Center in his honour on 29 November 1963.
