Tower Promo Art (Windows 3.x)

Apollo promotional video clips 1996-08-23

Multiple product promo video file: FSFS-TOW.AVI - 4'37" to 9'50". Video found on the 'Apollo Collection 2' CD Caption is taken from the speaker text, almost identical to the text on the back of the US box. (I omitted voice radio chatter) The one difference I note is the third airport listed as fictional on the box, but the speaker gives it a different name, March.
