Customs Control

Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins had a little dose of bureaucracy on their return from the Moon in July 1969. After the splashdown in the Pacific, they passed through the Honolulu Airport where they filed a standard customs form. The flight number they listed was Apollo 11 and the goods they declared: moon rock and moon dust samples. And the route they laid out? Florida’s Cape Kennedy to Honolulu, Hawaii. With a brief stopover at Moon.
