Additional notes
Originally released as part of the aircraft range with decal markings for number "63" (large numbers on side of fuselage). It was re-released the following year as part of the new Space range with markings "66" and described in the catalogues as the famous 66 (1969 cataloque description above) that picked up the Apollo astronauts.

The Original "63" in Type 3 box is therefore rare.

The 1971 issue of the "66" (the Apollo 11 recovery aircraft from USS Hornet) also included a winch cage and astronaut figure.
