I have always been interested in the Apollo missions, particularly Apollo 11. I have been lucky enough to collect some of the flight plan pages and have been wondering... where are all the other pages?

How many other cS members have pages from this mission? Would it ever be possible to track the whereabouts of the hundreds of pages of this (in my opinion) extremely historical document? Should there not be a database set up so that it could, at least, be possible to know their whereabouts?

I'm sure that with a bit of detective work it would actually be possible (with the cooperation of the owners/sellers) to track these pages down! To what end I do not know, but it would be interesting. (Maybe put the whole flight plan back together in 2069!? I'll be 100 yrs old! I'm sure that future generations will be amazed that we actually divided it up in the first place!)

I know that I have contributed to the fact that there is a market for these flight plans to be split and sold, but when you think about it, it's like dividing up the Magna Carta or the Declaration of Independence and never being able to put them back together.
