    Description

    Apollo 11 Training-Used: NASA Rare "Apollo XI LM-5 Flight Crew G&N (Guidance and Navigation) Dictionary" May 29, 1969-dated Book, Updated as of July 10, Directly from the Collection of Lunar Module Mission Simulator Instructor H. Ray Hubbard. A 6" x 8" book of approximately 125 pages bound by a binder ring between cardstock covers as issued to H. Hubbard who has written his name and "FINAL updated 7/10" on the front. This dictionary was used as a reference by the Lunar Module crew to give commands to, respond to, and interact with the LM-5 guidance and control computers, both primary and back-up. An exceedingly important reference book. Light wear, fine.

    This and the adjacent lots comprise a complete set of final version flight-planning documents as used by instructors and Apollo 11 crewmembers on the Lunar Module Mission Simulator at Cape Kennedy during the last days of crew training just prior to launch. An amazing collection of documents seldom offered in any form and rarely with this type of provenance. Captain Hershell Ray Hubbard, USAF, was an LMMS instructor at the Cape and also Staff Support at Houston when required. He has carefully preserved these as to document the preparations for this landmark flight and is now sharing them with the public.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
