American Holidays welcomed Captain Jon McBride, a former NASA astronaut and retired American naval officer to Dublin. A handful of lucky customers joined the American Holidays sales and marketing team for a private lunch with Jon McBride, at Isabelle's Restaurant, Dublin.

 

On 5th October 1984, McBride launched with STS 41-G Challenger for an eight-day mission, on which he was a member of the first crew of seven. Today, astronaut Jon McBride works with the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Orlando as a member of the Astronaut Encounter team.

 

Located 45 minutes from Orlando International Airport, the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is home to a mix of attractions which bring the story of the U.S. space programme to life. Want to meet Captain Jon A. McBride yourself? Book your Orlando getaway with American Holidays and you could be enjoying your own NASA astronaut encounter at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
