Today, a private funeral service will be held in Cincinnati for Neil Armstrong. Local aviation photographer Dan Patterson has this remembrance of the first man to walk on the moon.
Neil had a knack for understatement. At a meeting in 2003 about the Centennial of the Wright's first flight, the other participants introduced themselves with all their titles and bona fides. When it was his turn, he leaned into the microphone and said, "I'm Neil Armstrong, and I'm just an aviator."
