Description


Hugely desirable flown 10.5 x 8 double-sided page from the final 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.” The page’s front and back, numbered “3-25” and “3-26,” consist of a four-hour rest period, from 37:00 to 41:00, during translunar coast on the second day, with the notes field stating: “During rest period 2 crewmen in rest station, 1 in left couch.” In fine condition.

Accompanied by 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 during the first lunar landing mission. This sheet is from the detailed timeline section and covers hours 37 though 41 of the mission. Page 3-25 lists two hours of our second rest period which started at approximately 37 hours after launch. Each of us had adjusted well to weightlessness and we all got some sound sleep. Neil Armstrong had about 8 hours and Mike Collins close to 9. I got around 8 hours of total sleep…This page has been in my private collection since 1969.”
