Substantial swatch of flown stowage assembly netting from the Apollo 13 Lunar Module 'Aquarius,' measuring approximately 7″ x 3.5″, mounted in a handsome museum-quality display with UV-resistant glass featuring a color glossy photo of the Saturn V rocket, signed in silver ink, "Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP," a mission patch, and a descriptive plaque to an overall size of 14 x 26.5. In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from The Space Collective, outlining the history of this piece: "The flown stowage assembly material came from the collection of William 'Bill' Looney, Grumman Lunar Module Test Manager from Feb 1966 to Feb 1973. The material was given to Bill by his boss, Ted Mormon, and was left over from the creation of the Apollo 13 Grumman Awards. Bill worked at Grumman for 35 years and was the Lunar Module Test Manager at Kennedy Space Center for Apollo's 10, 13, and 15, and supported Apollo 5 (the first LM to fly) and Apollo 11."
