Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 12 June 2015

Public visitors to the Paris Air Show this year will have a rare opportunity to meet face-to-face with one of only 24 men who have flown to the moon and back, when NASA Astronaut Al Worden joins the crew of Arogare USA for the public weekend presentation of the U.S. International Pavilion next week at Le Bourget.

During the Trade Week of the Paris Air Show, 15-19 June, the U.S. International Pavilion will be home to 230-plus American exhibitors competing to grow their share of global commercial, military and space markets.

During the following Public Weekend, American organizer Kallman Worldwide will transform the pavilion into Arogare USA, a celebration of U.S. innovation in aviation.

This year, Astronaut Worden will be the featured Arogare USA guest presenter during the mornings of 20 and 21 June in Hall 3. His presentation will recall his flight to the moon, 26 July to 7 August 1971, as the Command Module Pilot of Apollo 15.

During that flight, Worden was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most isolated human being for being 2,235 miles away from any other people.

In addition to talking with air show visitors about his life as an astronaut, Worden will take pictures with Arogare USA visitors and autograph copies of his book, Falling to Earth.

Arogare USA will also feature educational displays, interactive exhibits, games, crafts, giveaways and concessions designed to engage and entertain visitors of all ages, particularly families and children.

The Paris Air Show would not exist without the enthusiastic support of the French people, particularly the citizens of Paris. The success of the event is a direct reflection of their deep cultural affection for flight, and national pride in hosting the worlds aerospace leaders every two years at Le Bourget, said Kallman Worldwide President and CEO Tom Kallman. On behalf of our exhibitors and our U.S. International Pavilion team, were proud to present Arogare USA, featuring American hero, Al Worden, for the enlightenment and enjoyment of public visitors to this years Paris Air Show.

The 2015 edition of Arogare USA follows the success of the inaugural presentation in 2013, which hosted 4,000-plus visitors and staffed 14 activity stations over the two-day period.
