Apollo 8 astronaut Bill Anders, who captured 'Earthrise,' killed in plane crash

I joined the Apollo program a few months before the historic escape from Gravity of Earth that I described as the Moment parallel to escape of Buoyancy when we became amphibians!
The Figure of 8 around Earth-Moon System and as described 10 orbits around the Moon bring nostalgic memories of Lovell, Anders, Borman.
These astronauts had a jet each allotted to them at that time.
When air-space is so dear to them it is an activity in which they are engaged.
Anders -RIP and wishing His family Great Inner-Peace.
