Neil Armstrong flies with Knut Kjenslie

On September 20th, CBS's 60 MINUTES crew came out to Seminole-Lake Gliderport, Clermont, FL. where they had scheduled bringing a "Mystery Man" Glider Pilot for a glider flight check-out and filming.

Knut Kjenslie, owner and operator of the Gliderport found out the mystery man was Neil Armstrong. Neil Armstrong wanted a check out to fly one of Knut's gliders.

Armstrong wanted to fly gliders in the filming of a segment about his love of glider flying. This is part of a special profile on the famous Astronaut in conjunction with his Neil Armstrong autobiography. Mr. Armstrong was a competitive Gliderpilot in the 1960s', before he went to the moon.

This special Profile on Neil Armstrong is set to air Sunday November 6 2005 on "60 Minutes". The producer told Knut not to be offended but they will also have to air a little about him not only being a gliderpilot but that he was the First man to walk on the moon and the most famous Astronaut to date.
