ORIGINALLY FROM THE COLLECTION OF APOLLO 11 LUNAR MODULE PILOT BUZZ ALDRINAPOLLO 11- LAUNCH CHECKLIST TRAINING SHEETCORRECTION TO "PKG TEMP" MADE BY MICHAEL COLLINS Apollo 11 Launch Operations Checklist, page 2-7 / 2-8, a single sheet consisting of Insertion Checklist steps to be carried out by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin. Printed recto and verso. NASA/MSC, April 15, revised June 16, 1969. 8 x 5 1/2 inches. With a Typed Letter Signed by Buzz Aldrin, on his letterhead. Checklist sheet SIGNED and INSCRIBED by BUZZ ALDRIN: "Used in Training for APOLLO XI. BUZZ ALDRIN." BUZZ ALDRIN'S provenance letter reads in part: "Accompanying this letter is a page numbered 2-7 and 2-8 from the CSM 107 (Apollo 11) Launch Operations Checklist, SKB32100080-306. The pages are part of the complete manual that was used in the Command Module Apollo Mission Simulator at the Manned Spacecraft Center in Houston, Texas. The page is from Section 2 titled: Boost-Insertion-TLI. The entire checklist, including this actual page, was used by all three Apollo 11 crew members: Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and myself. This section in particular was extensively used by Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins who sat in the left and center seats during the Saturn V launch phase. Neil had the command responsibility to initiate an abort if the launch profile deviated from the planned events outlines in this checklist section. The launch profile was the most intense training we as a crew performed together. The simulator teams would give us all types of warning messages and problems to solve during a simulated launch. The simulator was an excellent learning device and this checklist was an important tool to insure our correct performance. This training was a key step which enabled our flight to make the first manned lunar landing on July 20, 1969. Side 2-7 has the Insertion Checklist steps to be done by Neil, Mike, and myself. There are over 35 steps to be carried out. Side 2-8 has the Sys Monitoring & Checking steps to be done by Mike. He made the "55-210" corrections and circle mark on this page."
