DAILY NEWS, New York, NY, November 17, 1998
* John Glenn returns from space
* At 77, he becomes the oldest person to go into space
The front page of the special 16 page section honoring astronauts has: "HERO", with the entire page taken up with a photo of the ticker-tape parade featuring John Glenn and his wife, in honor of him becoming the oldest person to travel into space. It includes the caption: "OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD PARADE FOR GLENN & CO." The insert includes multiple photos and articles covering NASA's accomplishments over time. The entire 24 page regular daily issue is also present.
The issue is believed to be complete, but is being sold for the described content. It is in good condition, but is separated at the spine (see images), making it great for display.
