Caption: Apollo 11 worldwide tour, Dacca, October 1969. Footage of the Apollo 11 astronauts and their wives arriving and being greeted by a red carpet at the airport on the Dacca (East Pakistan, now Bangladesh) leg of the global Presidential Goodwill Tour that took place from 29 September to 5 November 1969. The plane used was the Vice-President's plane, and it was crewed by Air Force presidential pilots and crew. Descending from the aircraft are Mike Collins and his wife Patricia, followed by Buzz Aldrin and his wife Joan. Neil Armstrong is already at the base of the steps, and is later seen garlanded, with flowers, being escorted through the crowd with the authorities struggling to maintain control. Officially called the Giantstep Apollo 11 tour, the route took the Apollo 11 astronauts and their entourage to 27 cities in 22 countries over a period of 37 days. NASA astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Mike Collins were the crew of the historic Apollo 11 mission (16-24 July 1969), achieving the first landing by humans on the Moon on 20 July 1969. Around 100 million people turned out across the world to see the men who had been to the Moon. The visit to Dacca, East Pakistan (now Dhaka, Bangladesh), took place from 27-28 October 1969.
