Description


Huge original Apollo 11 (AS-506) Launch Control Center (LCC) assignment board used throughout the Apollo 11 launch preparations and on the day of the launch. The framed magnetic name board measures 44 x 38 and is painted at the top with red-and-silver "Apollo" lettering, with a magnetically attached "11" to the right. The board retains the magnetic panels designating the CSM "107" and LM "005," and lists the various supervisors and managers on duty. The same board, but with different names added for other Apollo/Saturn V launch preparations and liftoffs, was also used in 1967 for NASA's first maiden rocket launch (AS-501) and for Apollo 8 (AS-503) in 1968. After Apollo 11's launch to the moon in July 1969, it was detached from the wall of the firing room and presented as a gift to Norm Carlson, Apollo 11's Chief Test Conductor of NASA's Launch Vehicle Operations; it remained in Carlson's possession until it was acquired by Ken Havekotte in 2016. In very good condition, with moderate wear to frame and fading to the Apollo 11 designation. Accompanied by color print of a photo in which the board is easily seen on the wall of the LCC's Firing Room 1 during the Apollo program, as well as a vintage glossy black-and-white photo in which it can be seen. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
