Description


Extraordinary complete ring-bound CMP checklist carried and used on the Apollo 9 mission, 5.75 x 8, 81 double-sided pages, signed and flight-certified on the back cover in black felt tip by the full crew, "Flown on Apollo 9, James A. McDivitt," "Dave Scott, Apollo 9 CMP," and "Rusty Schweickart, Apollo 9 LMP." The front cover reads: "Apollo 9, CMP Checklist, Part No. SKB32100028-201, S/N 1005." The checklist has been extensively annotated throughout by CMP Dave Scott, with various handwritten notes, sketches of sunspot observations, and figures related to the flight and spacecraft. In fine condition, with expected wear from use.

Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from McDivitt, in part: "This is to certify that the accompanying Apollo 9 CMP (Command Module Pilot) Checklist...was flown into Earth orbit in March, 1969 aboard the command module 'Gumdrop' on the first test mission of the lunar module. This CMP Checklist is one of the Flight Data File (FDF) checklists we carried during our historic test of the combined Command/Service Module (CSM) and Lunar Module (LM) on the Apollo 9 flight...The checklist also includes handwritten notes, sunspot observations made by David Scott and notations on each location of the Personal Preference Kits (PPK) as well as star charts related to the navigation of the spacecraft in orbit." Complete flown checklists are relatively scarce, as many have been broken up and sold piecemeal over the years. What makes this example truly remarkable are the copious notations written throughout by CMP Dave Scott, who would go on to walk on the moon during Apollo 15. A magnificent, well-documented flown piece of Apollo history.
