While digging through my collection, I found a NASA manual titled: "Orbiter 102, Display and Control Panels Flight Configuration Changes STS-1 through STS-5." It is A4 in size and bound by the usual NASA heavy duty staple in the top left corner.

It has line drawings of all the individual panels in it (similar to the Apollo manual panels on the NASA History website), I guess panels were modified and swapped during the flights tests as different systems were tested, payloads deployed, etc.

I can't find a copy or pdf file of this online anywhere and was wondering if anyone else had seen one of these? And were they produced for the other orbiters or just Columbia during testing?

All times are CT (US)
