    Space Shuttle Columbia OV-102 Early Displays and Controls Diagrams Directly from the Personal Collection of STS-1 and STS-9 Commander John Young, Signed and Certified. An amazing group of eight 37.5" x 11" printed pull-out engineering drawings of early designs for various displays and controls intended for the first-ever spaceworthy shuttle in NASA's fleet. These all fold down to 8.5" x 11" and are bound together with both staples and binder rings. All these charts are dated 1978 which is three years prior to the first shuttle flight. The first four are titled "Displays and Controls/ Forward Stations/ Figure 19-1"; the second three, "Displays and Controls/ Aft Stations/ Figure 19-2"; and the last, "Displays and Controls/ Mid Deck and Airlock/ Figure 19-3". Young has signed on the front page: "Early Simulator/ Displays for Design/ & Controls/ John W. Young." John Young, of course, commanded the first manned flight of Columbia, STS-1, April 12-14, 1981. Rather an early group of design drawings for the space shuttle program; all are extremely detailed and quite displayable. Fine condition with evidence of extensive use and handling.
