|Outstanding in his field...|
My father posing next to one of the many rockets he helped to launch...calling the countdown and pressing the ignition switch!
In this photo, a collection of the paraphernalia used to support a launch is visible -- the altiscope, landing locator, field equipment box, notepad, pre-launch checklist, and test equipment for setting the PET module.
Some other items typically brought to a launch were a camera (still), movie camera, tape recorder, binoculars, transceivers and even a small shovel L
