Apollo 11

Flight Plan

After several years, I am finally organizing Tom Barton’s (father-in-law) memorabilia.

One of the more interesting finds is the flight plan for the Apollo 11 lunar mission. 


“Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two humans on the Moon. Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969 (48 years ago).

The flight plan is a detailed minute by minute plan of the mission, while a NASA document, much of the effort was done by TRW as the primary contractor for flight planning.
