Catalogue Note

Checklist sheet INSCRIBED and SIGNED by BUZZ ALDRIN: "Used in training for Apollo XI, BUZZ ALDRIN" on page 2-3.

BUZZ ALDRIN'S provenance letter reads in part: "Accompanying this letter is a page numbered 2-3 and 2-4 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… Neil had the command responsibility to initiate an abort if the launch profile deviated from the planned events outlined in this checklist section and make vocal confirmation of many events on these pages.

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… This training was a key step which enabled our flight to make the first manned lunar landing on July 20, 1969.

Both sides of this checklist page have boost events starting with ignition at T-9 seconds through the first 6 minutes of powered flight. Neil made a correction to the Max Q time. The major events included liftoff, a roll and pitch of the vehicle, inboard engine cutoff, the remaining first stage engines shutting down, staging, the S-II ignition, and our escape tower jettison…

I kept this checklist after our mission as a reminder of the all the training that took place back in 1969. I have written on page 2-3: “Used in training for Apollo XI” and signed it along the bottom of that page. A copy of the checklist cover page is included."
