Title: Apollo 12 crewmembers greeted by family on arrival at Ellington
Description:
Members of the Apollo 12 lunar landing mission's crew are greeted by their 
wives and children at the front of a large crowd on hand to welcome home
the  three. The Mobile Quarantine Facility (MQF), with the crew inside,
arrived at  Ellington Air Force Base aboard a U.S. Air Force C0141
transport jet on  November 29, 1969. The crewmen, looking out the MQF
window at the crowd, are  (l-r) Astronauts Charles Conrad Jr., Richard F.
Gordon Jr., and ALan L. Bean.  Their wives are, from left to right, Mrs.
Barbara Gordon, Mrs Jane Conrad and  Mrs. Sue Bean. The women are wearing
leis, an Hawaii tradition (60759);  Conrad talks by phone to members of his
family standing outside the MQF.  Beside him are Gordon (center) and Bean
(60760).
