Estimate: $6,000.00 +

Impressive flown stowage assembly cover with straps carried into lunar orbit aboard the Lunar Module Aquarius during the Apollo 13 mission, measuring approximately 13″ x 3.25″, made of Beta cloth and featuring button snaps to either end. The strap is attractively mounted and double-matted with NASA ‘meatball’ and Apollo 13 insignia patches, a descriptive plaque, and a large photo of Swigert handing over a hose assembly with a similar strap; framed in a museum-quality display with UV-resistant glass to an overall size of 22 x 27.25. In very fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from The Space Collective, outlining the history of this piece: "The flown stowage assembly cover with straps…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."
