June Lockhart Goes Back to the Jupiter 2
On Saturday, June 19th, June Lockhart came to Long Island to do a Photo Shoot on the original Jupiter 2 Flight deck for an AP (Associated Press)/ENPS venture. She arrived at 10:30 that morning and was as gracious as could be imagined. She is a class act and took time to speak with me at length and was simply wonderful towards my guests. Seeing her expression as she walked onto the flight deck for the first time since 1968 was at the very least, a moment that as a LIS fan, I could never have imagined.
In the early 1990's when I first began taking posession of the Jupiter 2 props, I thought that to be a major coup, until June 19th that is, when June Lockhart came in and completed the fantasy.
After the shoot, we sat by my computer with it's cable modem and I took her on a tour of the various LIS related web sites. We also browsed through my photo archives from LIS and back issues of The Alpha Centaurian.
I must say, Ms. Lockhart has not aged, she also defines class and elegance.
