United States astronaut Buzz Aldrin will take flight once again, this time with the world-renowned Thunderbirds at the Melbourne Air and Space Show in Florida. Aldrin was the second man on the moon, piloting the Apollo 11 and following Neil Armstrong on to the lunar surface in 1969.
Now 87, the retired air force colonel will be the oldest person to fly with the Thunderbirds, known for their rigorous physical requirements. His flight comes as the air force celebrates its 70th year.AP
