[i][b]LC-19 Road Sign - The Story Continues.[/b] I believe I first wrote about this story some two years ago in the NIU and I thought the case was closed, but such is not the case! Taking a lead from a posting in collectSPACE (neat website by the way!), there are more mistakes with the current sign.
I thought Pete Chitko and I had double and triple checked this sign for correctness last year, but we missed some things. Okay, Pete and I have now checked ourselves several times over and I intend to get with the Director of Operations at CCAFS who I have previously worked with and report the following: [list=1][*]The number of orbits posted for the GT-3, GT-7, GT-9, GT-10, GT-11, and GT-12 missions is incorrect. Pete and I believe the correct numbers should be 3, 206, 47, 43, 44, and 59 respectively.
[*]Tom Stafford's name is spelled incorrectly for the GT-6 mission, note the 't' instead of 'f'.[/list] I will see about getting these mistakes corrected! Lesson Learned: You can never check something enough, whatever it is in life!
PS - The noted Director specifically asked me last year if the information on the Subject Sign was correct and I responded in the affirmative! Also of note, it would appear the 'number of orbits' mistakes are consistent as this is about a 5th generation sign. I checked photos of some of the previous signs and they show the same mistakes![/i]
