Ring-bound checklist used in Apollo 10 training, entitled “LM Systems Activation Checklist (2 ea), SKB32100079-360, Training Copy, Final May 5, 1969,” approximately 74 pages, 6 x 8 signed inside the front cover in black ink, “Tom Stafford, Apollo X, Cdr.” The checklist details the steps for various checks and system activation procedures, with tabs such as “Drogue and Probe Act-35,” “Ldg Gear Deploy,” “APS Burn to Depletion,” “Config S-Band,” and “LM-Closeout.” Several pages inside are annotated, with notes including: “Hi Gain: Pitch—90, Yaw—0,” “Slew Antenna Left to Mode I Region,” and various numbers. In very good condition, with some scattered staining and rust marks to covers from binder rings (which appear to have been replaced). Also includes a manual entitled “Final Apollo 10 Flight Plan, AS-505/CSM-106/LM-4 April 17, 1969,” labeled “Eisele” in the upper right corner. Both were obtained directly from Eisele’s son. Eisele was the backup Command Module Pilot for Apollo 10. An exceptional offering of seldom available extensively used training material. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
