Fred Haise

A real American hero, Fred began his 20-year NASA career as an aeronautical research pilot and served as backup crew for early Apollo missions. But he is best known as the lunar module pilot on the ill-fated 1970 Apollo 13 lunar mission, played by actor Bill Paxton in the blockbuster film, Apollo 13. Following the Apollo 13 mission, Fred commanded the space shuttle Enterprise during its Approach & Landing Tests.
