[It's not] Rocket Science! Lean to fly the Apollo Program module simply by looking down at your tie. Granted we've taken quite a few artistic liberties by moving around the most interesting looking dials and switches to suit the vertical tie shape, so maybe to be safe, get a copy of the actual manual if you're going to fly your own reproduction moon lander. But this will sure help!
We've come upon an incredible repository of vintage declassified documents including NASA's "Command Module Main Control Panel" - from the Apollo Operations Handbook Block II Spacecraft, 1969. One of our most detailed prints yet - enjoy!
Shown: Dove gray on black; charcoal; white.
Standard width microfiber.
The 5th image shows a photo sent in by a client showing the Apollo Cockpit tie (stand width, charcoal silk) he ordered alongside the ACTUAL APOLLO INSTRUMENTS shown in the design. He acquires, preserves and documents spacecraft, launch vehicle and propulsion system components from the U.S. Space Program.
From Scott: "..the gauge is called a Flight Direction Attitude Indicator (FDAI),there were two of these installed in the Apollo Command Module and another two in the Lunar Module..
The other two panel components are a Launch Vehicle warning / abort indicator (it indicated to the astronauts if any of the Saturn engines was off nominal and the flight had to be aborted during lift off) ; and a fuel metering gauge which metered the flow of propellants into the the Command Service Module (CSM) main propulsion system."
WOW WOW WOW!
