Description


Amazing flown 10.5 x 8 page from the Apollo 11 Flight Plan carried into lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Columbia during the first lunar landing mission, signed and flight-certified in blue ballpoint, “Carried to the moon on Apollo XI, Buzz Aldrin,” and in black ballpoint, “Michael Collins, Apollo XI CMP.” The page, numbered “3-32a” and headed “MCC, Burn Chart,” features a grid of terms and values associated with Mid Course Correction engine burn No. 3, or MCC3, with grid parts including pitch and yaw rates, attitude deviation, engine shutdown time, and residuals. In fine condition.

Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Novaspace for the Collins signature, a CD-ROM with video from the Collins signing, a copy of the front cover to the Apollo 11 Flight Plan, and a signed certificate of authenticity from Buzz Aldrin, who writes that the page “is part of the entire document that was carried to the Moon in Command Module Columbia on the first lunar landing mission during July 16 to 24, 1996. This sheet is from the detailed timeline section and was located at the beginning of hour 53 in the timeline…Our trajectory was precise enough during this point of the flight that MCC3 was not required…Since the MCC3 was canceled, we had a chance to take a few moments to briefly reflect on events. Our launch was exactly on time, the Translunar Injection engine burn worked as planned, and we had no problems docking with and pulling Lunar Module Eagle from. Its berth in the Saturn third stage. We were well on our way to the first lunar landing…This page has been in my private collection since 1969.”
