Description


Original Associated Press teletype reporting on the first lunar landing, one page, 8.5 x 21, beginning with dialogue from the first man on the moon: "Armstrong 'Houston that seemed like a very long final phase. The auto targeting was taking us right into a football field sized crater with a lot of boulders…it required us flying manually over the rock field to find a real good area.' Armstrong 'The guys who said we wouldn't be able to tell precisely where we are were the winners.'" The exact moment of landing is chronicled further down on the scroll, in part: "'You are go for landing,' the pilots were told. Just two minutes before landing. 'Two-thousand feet,' said Armstrong. 14-hundred feet. 400….300…200. Coming down nicely. 120 feet…100…75. 30 feet picking up some dust. Engine stopped…They've landed…The time…4:17:42 P-M, July 20th, 1969." In very good to fine condition, with numerous horizontal folds. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
