Does anybody know of a simple, clear, closed plastic box which would effectively hold Apollo flight plans? The two documents are 8'x10.5" (Gov't Letter) and are 3/4"-1" in thickness.

The Container Store and has a 9x13x2 hinged acrylic (or polystyrene) box I've used for a larger CM Data Book.

In this case, I am searching for something right-sized to individually/snugly house an A11 Final Flight Plan and a corresponding A11 Lunar Surface Operations Plan.

Thanks in advance for any leads - I've struck out thus far.

You want to store them in some type of archival box ... Gaylord Brothers is a great source for all preservation supplies.

I struggled for ages to get 3-ring binders for flight plans here in the UK (no-one uses 3-ring hole punches outside of the US as far as I can see).

I ended up getting them (bizarrely) from "CONQUEST BOOKS - Christian resources for all the family" at a bargain £35 for 10. They are not archival though, so I put the cover in an archival sleeve.

Thanks guys.

I looked at both resources mentioned and while there were good items available, neither had quite the form-fitting acrylic box I was hoping for.

Appreciate the help/pointers and will keep hunting....

All times are CT (US)
