    Apollo 13 Training-Used LM Malfunction Procedures Book Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed and Certified. This 8.5" x 10.5" (including tabs) book of eighty+ pages is three-hole punched and bound with binder rings. The title is "APOLLO 13/ LM MALFUNCTION PROCEDURES", the part number is "SKB32100076-386", and there is no serial number. Lovell has signed on the front cover: "James Lovell/ Used during Apollo 13/ mission training- This/ training manual is from my/ personal collection/ JL". This Flight Data File book is the final revision dated March 17, 1970, and is divided by tabs into various sections pertaining to potential malfunctions within the lunar, containing many procedural flow charts. Apollo 13's Lunar Module Aquarius performed admirably. It literally saved the lives of all three crewmembers; it was used as a "lifeboat" on the return trip to Earth after an onboard explosion aborted the planned moon landing. Very fine condition with some light staining around the punched holes.

    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.
