Flown to the moon on Apollo 11, signed by Aldrin and Collins.Apollo 11 Flown Flight Plan Page Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin, Signed and Certified, also Signed by Mission Command Module Pilot Michael Collins. A 10.5" x 8" page numbered 3-27/3-38, three hole punched, from the "Flight Plan" "P/N #SKB32100080-350" and "S/N 1001" (a copy of the front cover of this book is included with the lot). This page covers hours forty-one through forty-five of the mission, the second rest period. Aldrin has signed on the 3-27 side, "Carried to the Moon on Apollo XI/ Buzz Aldrin" and Collins has signed beneath "Michael Collins/ Apollo XI CMP".
Collins mentions this rest period in his book Carrying the Fire: An Astronaut's Journey, pages 385-386: "By the time we get the TV equipment packed up, it's time for a long snooze. This time it is my turn under the left couch, zipped loosely inside a floating hammock, and I am comfortable indeed, much more so that last night or during any of my three Gemini nights."
Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity from Aldrin stating, in part: "Enclosed with this letter is a sheet numbered 3-27 and 3-28 from the Apollo 11 Flight Plan, Part No. SKB32100080-350, S/N 1001. It is part of the entire document that was carried to the Moon in the Command Module Columbia during the first lunar landing mission... The flight plan was probably the single most important document related to the success of our mission. It provided a time schedule of crew activities and spacecraft maneuvers to accomplish the first lunar landing. This page has been in my private collection since 1969..."
Also included is an illustrated Certificate of Authenticity from Novaspace Galleries regarding the Collins signature.
