Description

    Apollo 10 Flown Alternate Flight Plans Checklist Book Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot John Young, Signed and Certified. This 8.25" x 10.5" book consists of twenty printed pages and six pull-out charts on three hole-punched paper and bound with three binder rings between two cardstock covers. The front cover lists the part number as "SKB32100079-351" and the serial number as "1001". Young has signed on the front cover: "Flown on Apollo 10/ John W. Young". The first internal page is titled "Apollo 10 - Alternate Missions/ List Of Activities To Be Planned In/ Real Time As Time Is Available/ Rev. A 8 May 1969". This page is followed by six consecutive pull-out charts of 16.75" x 10.5" with plastic-coated printed tabs titled "Earth Orbit Alternate 1A and 1B", then "...2" through "...5", followed by "Lunar Alternate CSM/LM Flyby". Each of these charts offers an alternate mission summary flight plan in a horizontally-oriented graphic timeline representation based on the various contingencies that might force modifications to the mission. The next regular-sized page is tabbed "Lunar Orbit Alt. CSM Only". Following are eighteen numbered pages detailing procedures for mission elapsed time 75:00 through 110:00 in the situation of an "Unsuccessful T, D, and E Attempt". A very interesting, important, and rarely offered title that was flown on man's second journey into lunar orbit. There does not appear to be any writing or notations in this book which is in very fine condition with some tiny stains on the covers and one rusty paperclip mark on page one.
