Description

"Okay. Houston....We had a pretty large bang"

Apollo 13 flight plan manual entitled "Final Apollo 13 Flight Plan, AS-508/CSM-109/LM-7, March 16, 1970," 8 x 10.5, signed on the front cover in blue ballpoint, "Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP." Also signed inside on page 3-38 at the time the crew discovered the spacecraft's malfunction, "'Okay. Houston….We had a pretty large bang…' Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP." The manual is disbound and each page is contained in a sleeve within a large binder. In fine condition, with some mild foxing, rust marks, and tears at binder holes to cover and first page; interior pages remain fine. Uncommon even in unsigned examples, this is an especially desirable flight plan as it is signed and annotated by the infamous mission's Lunar Module Pilot.
