Crew of the first manned Apollo mission practice water egress procedures
Prime crew for the first manned Apollo mission relax in a life raft during water egress training in the Gulf of Mexico with a full scale boilerplate model of their spacecraft. Left to right, are Astronauts Roger B. Chaffee, pilot, Virgil I. Grissom, command pilot, and Edward H. White II (facing camera), senior pilot. In background is the "Duchess", a yacht owned by La Porte businessman Paul Barkley and provided by him as a press boat for newsmen covering the training.
