Item 520 - James Lovell and Fred Haise Catalog 409 (May 2013)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $8,097.60 (includes buyer's premium)


Flown two-sided checklist page from the Apollo 13 “LM Malfunction Procedures” handbook, 7.5 x 10.5, identified as page 15 and 16, titled at the top, “LMA790-3-LM, Apollo Operations Handbook,” signed in black ballpoint, “Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP,” and “James Lovell, Apollo 13 CDR.” The handbook from which this page originates was stowed aboard the Lunar Module Aquarius during the dramatic Apollo 13 aborted moon landing mission of April 1970. This page comes from the Abort Guidance System (AGS) section of the checklist, and details the flow-charted procedures to be carried out in the event of an abnormal response from the LM's Data Entry and Display Assembly (DEDA). In fine condition. Accompanied by a CD with thorough documentation evidencing the chain-of-ownership of the page as part of the complete checklist, as well as images of each page of the manual as flown. The checklist originated from the personal collection of James Lovell. After the explosion on Apollo 13 crippled the Service and Command Modules, the Lunar Module served as an unexpected ‘lifeboat’ for the astronauts during their return to Earth. Flown artifacts from this popularized mission are rarely available; the associations of this checklist page with Apollo 13 malfunction procedures and the LM Aquarius make it an especially desirable piece. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
