I am seeking audio for either the flight director loop or any of the mission controller loops for Apollo 13. I already have the EECOM loop included in Sy Liebergot's excellent autobiography, Apollo EECOM.

You might want to try and find the CD titled "Apollo 13- The Race Against Time". That has the Flight Directors loop, among many other things which will be of interest.

I have ordered the Arts & Letters CD. Thank you for that lead. If there is audio available that is not on the CD, I would also be interested in that.

Couple of pluses on the CD: I broke the EECOM audio into 1-2 minute snippets that you can click on. I also wrote a caption for each snippet, which describes who is talking and what they are talking about. A labor of love. The entire A/G voice transcript and Cortright Commission report is included, along with a bunch other material.--Sy

I did receive the CD, and I agree with you that it contains some interesting information. Thank you for the recommendation.

It looks to me that the full flight director loop for the mission has been lost. Probably lost for all the other missions too. That's too bad.

I thought the telemetry screens and explanations were especially interesting. But the person reading the narration during the telemetry was too cheerful, it sounded strange.
