Gemini 8 spacecraft on display at the Neil Armstrong Air & Space Museum in Wapakoneta, Ohio. This is located on I-75 about half way between Toledo and Dayton. Gemini 8 nearly ended in disaster when a stuck thruster put the spacecraft into a rapid roll. The only thing that saved the flight was Armstrong pulling the abort handle.
