S69-40147 (27 July 1969) --- The Apollo 11 crewmen, still under a 21-day quarantine, are greeted by their wives. They arrived at Ellington Air Force Base very early Sunday after a flight aboard a U.S. Air Force C-141 transport from Hawaii. Looking through the window of a Mobile Quarantine Facility (MQF) are (left to right) astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., and Michael Collins. The wives are (left to right) Mrs. Pat Collins, Mrs. Jan Armstrong, and Mrs. Joan Aldrin. The crew of the historic Apollo 11 lunar landing mission remained in the MQF until they arrived to the Crew Reception Area of the Lunar Receiving Laboratory at the Manned Spacecraft Center (MSC). The astronauts will be released from quarantine on Aug. 11, 1969.
