Description


Charles Conrad’s beige-colored cotton Apollo 12 NASA lunar landing training vehicle suit with an official ‘meatball’ patch on the right breast and a leather name patch reading “Pete Conrad, NASA–MSC” affixed with Velcro over the left breast. Signed below the name patch in black felt tip, “My LLTV Flight Suit, Charles Conrad, Cdr. Apollo XII.” The original Land Mfg. Co. Flite Wear tag is sewn into the collar area, with a size of “36, Short” indicated on a small white tag below. In fine condition, with slight soiling and typical wear from use. Conrad wore this flight suit while undergoing training in the ‘Flying Bedstead,’ a lunar landing training vehicle used to simulate his upcoming moon mission. As a uniform used during the Apollo program’s exhaustive, often dangerous, training activities, this is an exceedingly rare, personally-used flight suit from the third moon walker. The Leon Ford Collection. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
