Post-NASA clipboard owned by Buzz Aldrin

Buzz Aldrin’s personal flight clipboard and attached paperwork. The 5.75 x 9 tin clipboard, with pencil and flexible strap, is entitled “IFR Flight Organizer,” and illustrated with various flight specific lists and illustrations, including: “Flight Plan Sequence,” “Radio Failure Squawk 7600,” “Cruising Altitude,” and “Time Distance Check.” Clipped to the board is a collection of flight paperwork, including a Cessna 182 Skylane checklist, two flight checklists, a portion of Gunnell Aviation letterhead, two Los Angeles low altitude enroute charts, and a Burns Lithograph notepad. Aldrin has printed his name in pencil at the top of the Cessna checklist. In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of provenance signed in blue ink by Aldrin. Aldrin continued to fly locally near his home in Los Angeles following his retirement from NASA, and most assuredly used this clipboard in his travels.
