This original “final edition” of the Apollo 11 flight plan was restored, bounded and reprinted for the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing that took place in 1969. The plan has been authentically signed by Buzz Aldrin.
The flight plan for Apollo 11 is a minute-by-minute time line of activities for the mission crew–Neil Armstrong, Mike Collins, and Aldrin–and Mission Control in Houston. The flight was launched July 16, 1969. Touchdown on the moon took place, as scheduled, on July 20, 102 hours, 47 minutes, and 11 seconds after launch from Cape Kennedy. The astronauts spent 21 hours and 36 minutes on the moon, and returned to Earth on July 24.
The flight plan describes tasks to be done 102 to 103 hours into the flight. Immediately after landing, Armstrong and Aldrin reviewed their lunar contact checklist and reached a decision on “stay/no stay.” Armstrong then reported to Houston: “The Eagle has landed.”
This Flight Plan is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Buzz Aldrin Ventures COO Linn LeBlanc.
Autograph position and size on each item may vary, as each item is uniquely signed by Dr. Aldrin.
