Caption: Apollo 11 global tour, in-flight relaxation, October 1969. Footage of Apollo 11 astronauts playing cards in the passenger cabin of the plane flying them and their entourage from Kinshasa, Zaire, to Tehran, Iran. Neil Armstrong has his back to the camera (at left) and Mike Collins is sitting opposite him. From 0:40, the footage shows Patricia Collins (wife of Mike Collins) writing a letter. From 1:03, Buzz Aldrin is sleeping on a couch, with his wife Joan reading in a chair in the background. This flight was part 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. 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 Tehran, Iran, took place from 24-26 October 1969.
