This website is dedicated to all alumni of the Landing and Recovery Division and its supporting organizations for their contributions during the Gemini and Apollo Programs.

Received sad news that Charlie Hall passed away from congestive heart failure and pneumonia on January 2, 2018, in Pulaski, Virginia (son Allan Hall's tribute, Obituary).

Check out another great story from Larry Schmitt - The Terminal Landing System (TLS) and Landing Operations Test Vehicle (LOTV).

We've lost another great guy, Dick Williamson/NASA Photographer, on December 4, 2017, who supported LRD tests and recoveries (Obituary).

If you are an alumni of LRD or a supporting organization and would like to be on distribution, please email your contact info to hopalong12@verizon.net.

Calling all LRD alumni, jot down your war stories and dig out your old photos and mail/email to cmjesq@comcast.net (mailed photos will be returned to you quickly.) Comments on the LRD website are appreciated too.
