The original pilot sunglasses
In 1958 American Optical introduced the Flight Goggle 58, now known as the Original Pilot Sunglasses, and were produced for U.S. military pilots to provide them with maximum eye protection, optical performance and comfort. Right to the present time these Original Pilot sunglasses are made in the American Optical (now known as AO Eyewear) complex in Southbridge, MA. Among the many accomplishments of these Original Pilot sunglasses is that they were honored to be the first ever sunglasses to land on the moon. They were worn by Commander Neil Armstrong and the crew of Apollo 11 in 1969.
