    Description

    Apollo 11 Grumman Apollo Operations Handbook - Lunar Module LM5 And Subsequent Book in Binder. A massive (likely 1000+ pages) manual, 8" x 10.5", five-hole punched and contained in a vintage 3" black binder. On the front cover is an original "Manned Lunar Spacecraft/ LM-5" sticker. The part number on the title page is "LMA790-3-LM5 and Subsequent" with a NASA-KSC Technical Document Control Office date stamp of "Jun 27 1969," less than three weeks before the Apollo 11 launch. LM-5 was the fifth lunar module built by Grumman and the third to fly manned. Essentially, this is an owner's manual for the vehicle that became known worldwide as Eagle, the first manned spacecraft to land on the moon with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin aboard. There are literally hundreds of illustrations and tables contained herein, including dozens of foldout schematics and diagrams. Handily, there is an alphabetical index and list of abbreviations in the back. For those with a technical interest in this historical mission, this book is a veritable treasure trove of information. A special opportunity. Very fine condition.
