Description


Uncommon NASA “Apollo Flight Data File” entitled “Apollo 13, Final, LM Timeline,” used in training exercises for the Apollo 13 mission, 36 pages, 8.5 x 10.5, dated April 2, 1970, prepared by R. W. Lindemuth, book manager of the Flight Procedures Branch. Signed on the title page in black ballpoint, “Used in training for Apollo 13 including notes by Jim & myself! Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP” and ”Our Apollo 13 simulator Lunar Landing—If only on Fra Mauro, James Lovell, Apollo 13 CDR.” The manual is heavily annotated in pencil by the two astronauts, with the emended date on page three, “4-7-70,” indicating that the manual was likely used during one of the final landing simulations; Command Module Pilot Ken Mattingly was replaced by Jack Swigert just two days before launch following the former’s exposure to rubella. The manual contains copious annotations relative to the simulation, including the landing PDI GET time of “103:33:11.47.” A selection of the section headings are as follows: “Flt Pln Undocking,” “PDI to Backside,” “Lunar Surface Flt Plan,” “Flt Plan Lift Off,” and “Ascent Monitor.” The pages are housed in a three-ring binder. In very good to fine condition, with handling wear and some tearing punch holes. This was the planning document that Lovell would have followed had Aquarius successfully landed on the moon.
