Waiting for the limo bus, hanging with the astronauts (post 23)

We exit the small Melbourne airport terminal to the outdoor stand where bags are delivered. Marv and I just miss the limo bus and have to wait for the next one, which is not scheduled to come for 45 minutes. While outside we again see astronauts Bean, Irwin, Duke and McCandless. Apparently the flights they are waiting for are also delayed, We say hello and are able to take some pictures of them conversing. Marv and I barely step out of the plane and are already meeting four NASA astronauts (three of whom will later walk on the Moon and one will make the first untethered space walk).

    I've never seen such candid astronaut pictures. :)
