With 3 full page original color caricatures (one for each astronaut) signed and dated by Johnson Space Center artist Barbara Matelski, 1 black & white cartoon depicting the astronauts infected with German measles by Matelsi, and 1 folding chart (Alternate Mission 3 Summary Flight Plan). Notations in black felt-tip pen by Mission Commander James Lovell, notations by Command Module Pilot Jack Swigert in blue ball-point pen, notations by Lunar Module Pilot Fred Haise in pencil, pre-flight notations by Ken Mattingly in red felt-tip pen, late check list changes done by flight plan preparer in very fine-tip black pen. Three-hole punched and bound with three binder rings as issued, original heavy card stock covers. Front cover signed and inscribed by Fred Haise and signed by Jim Lovell and Jack Swigert.\nSIGNED AND INSCRIBED TO THE APOLLO 13 LEAD FLIGHT PLANNER BY LUNAR MODULE PILOT FRED HAISE, AND SIGNED BY MISSION COMMANDER JIM LOVELL AND COMMAND MODULE PILOT JACK SWIGERT: "TO BOB - A TRULY PERFECT FLIGHT PLAN AS FAR AS WE GOT. WE KNOW IT WOULD HAVE LED US BY THE HAND THE REST OF THE WAY ALSO. THANKS FOR THIS REMARKABLE DOCUMENT WHICH WE CARRIED TO THE MOON ON ODYSSEY 11-17 APRIL 1970. FRED HAISE. JAMES LOVELL. JACK SWIGERT." WITH MANUSCRIPT NOTATIONS BY ALL THREE CREW MEMBERS, RECORDING IN EXACTING DETAIL THE ACTIONS TAKEN BY THE CREW DURING THE MISSION, INCLUDING THE CRUCIAL CHANGES TO THE FLIGHT PLAN COMMUNICATED TO THEM BY CAPCOM AFTER THE EXPLOSION, AND THE INNOVATIVE PROCEDURES THAT SAVED THE CREW'S LIVES. AN INCREDIBLE EYE-WITNESS ACCOUNT OF THE MOST DRAMATIC AND HARROWING MISSION OF THE APOLLO PROGRAM. THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS DOCUMENT CANNOT BE OVERSTATED.\nThe Apollo 13 mission was meant to culminate in a third lunar landing, with Mission Commander James "Jim" Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot Fred Haise voyaging to the lunar surface on board the Lunar Module Aquarius while Command Module Pilot Jack Swigert orbited in the Command Module Odyssey. Things did not go according to plan. At just under 56 hours into the mission, an oxygen tank explosion resulted in a major loss to electrical power to the Command and Service Module, forcing the crew to cancel the lunar landing and move into the Aquarius, using it as a lifeboat in order to survive a four day journey around the moon and return back to Earth. With people on the ground from both NASA and the contractor team working around the clock, an alternate flight plan was developed, as recorded in the present document, and various procedures were developed resulting in the safe return of the Crew despite seemingly insurmountable obstacles. The mission stands out as a paragon of teamwork and first-class training.\nThe caricatures depict Lovell in his spacesuit pointing to a list of rules for the mission "Repeat after me...", Fred Haise with a hose dripping water protruding from the neck of his spacesuit, captioned "My 'UCTA' [Urine Collection & Transfer Assembly] never seems to fill!", and Jack Swigert standing on a soapbox on the lunar surface, mouth open wide saying "Mah fellow constituents...". Swigert was elected to Congress after leaving NASA, but died before being sworn in. NASA and the astronauts were a fun-loving bunch, and in fact they were known to sneak cartoons or pictures of Playboy bunnies into flight plans or cuff checklists. It is remarkable to note, that even in the midst of very serious events, the crew still kept their humor, as can be seen on page 3-35 for example, when Lovell notes "Haise took one hour to shave - suggest a beard for him next time."\nThe drama that unfolded during the Apollo 13 mission is well known, in large part due to the eponymous blockbuster Hollywood film, which was an adaptation of the book by Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger, Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13. As is often the case with film adaptations of books, it is sometimes necessary to simplify or change certain details in order to best adapt a story to film. Such is the case involving the front cover of the present Flight Plan. In the film, when a procedure is devised to make the Command Module's square filters work in the Lunar Module's round receptacles in order to deal with the dangerous levels of carbon dioxide in the spacecraft, CAPCOM, in relaying the procedure tells Fred Haise (played by Bill Paxton) to "Rip the cover off"; Haise in turn tells Jack Swigert (played by Kevin Bacon) "He wants you to rip the cover off the Flight Plan." Swigert does so, saying "With pleasure." This scene is not however, a precise accounting of events. If one carefully reads over the NASA Apollo 13 Air-to-Ground Voice Transcription, one can clearly see that the crew was in fact instructed to use an "LM Cue card", and that they did in fact use the "LM EVA Cue Card" and NOT the cover of the Flight Plan:\n03 18 09 17 CAPCOM: "Okay, I think the equipment you'll need will be two command module lithium hydroxide canisters, a roll of gray tape, the two LCGs, because we're going to use the bags from the LCGs, and one - one LM Cue card - one of those cardboard cue cards which you will cut off about an inch and a half out from the ring. Now I think that's all we'll need. Over"\n03 18 10 53 COMMANDER: "Okay. That's two lithium hydroxide canisters, one roll of that special gray tape, two LCGs which we're going to use the bags from, one LM cue card and..."\n03 18 10 53 CAPCOM: "Okay. That's affirmative, Jim. If you'll just cut the cue card, which is a handy piece of stiff paper the right size, about an inch and a half from the rings. Just cut off the ring holes, in other words, and you'll have a card about 11 inches long and probably 6 inches wide, something like that."\n...........\n03 18 37 32 CAPCOM: "Okay Jack. The next step is to get the EVA cue card and use it to form an arch over the top of the canister... You see Jack, what we're going to do is slip the bag over this whole assembly and the cue card will serve to keep the bag from being sucked down against the screen..." (see Tapes 61/1 p 410-62/5 p 421 of the Apollo 13 Technical Air-to-Ground Voice Transcription for the complete procedure.)
