Jeff Bezos congratulates the F-1 Engine Recovery Team for Citation of Merit

Jeff Bezos—leader of the F-1 Engine Recovery Team that was honored with the Citation of Merit at this year’s Annual Dinner—reflected on the evening and offered congratulations to the rest of the team on the official F-1 expedition blog:

“We were delighted and honored that Buzz Aldrin made the trip to present the award himself. It’s a big honor and well-deserved by a truly remarkable group of explorers. The search and recovery effort took years of work. All along the way, this team worked long, hard and smart, and we had a ton of fun. Thanks to the team, soon a whole new generation of young people will be able to see these amazing engines on display. A big congratulations to the whole expedition team!”
