A single page from Buzz's flown Apollo 11 Flight Plan. The Flight Plan provided each of the crewmen with a detailed list of activities and a corresponding time frame for every event from launch to splashdown. From eating to sleeping, trans lunar burns or docking manoeuvres: actions both mundane and mission critical were covered and the crew would often add notations, updates or calculations to the Flight Plan as the mission unfolded.
I was fortunate to spend a couple of days in the comapny of Apollo 12 Command Module Pilot Dick Gordon when he visited Pontefract, West Yorkshire in 2011. There could not have been a nicer, more affable man in the astronaut corp. While this flag accompanied his crewmates and best friends to the lunar surface Dick missed his opportunity to match the feat when, as Commander of Apollo 18 his flight was cancelled by the Nixon administration.
As Apollo 12 Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean travelled with this flag to the lunar surface. While attending an Autographica show he was kind and gracious enough to attest to that fact on the flag itself.
A number of the astronaut corp were famed for their practical jokes or "Gotchas". The "Beep Beep" Apollo 14 back-up crew patch being arguably the most famous. Secreted throughout both spacecraft by the score, even making it onto the modularized cart used to traverse the lunar surface, the patches would float out of every compartment, locker or check-list.
