Fourteen months before Apollo 11, Neil Armstrong crashed the "flying bedstead" training vehicle and punched out to land with a parachute:

I heard a story that the next day he just went back to his office and didn't tell anyone about it. When the word got out and he was asked about it he just said - "yeah, that happened" and went back to work. Neil Armstrong was probably one of the calmest test pilots (and most humble) in the early space program. Others were flashier, but Neil was a "cool" test pilot under pressure.
