APOLLO 11 PREFLIGHT ACTION ITEMS.
"Apollo 11 Preflight Action Items." MSC Internal Document, May 29, 1969. Upwards of 75 pp. 11 by 8½ inches. Heavy card stock cover, punched and tabbed.

Signed by Buzz Aldrin as LMP on front cover, a critical document that assisted the timely departure of Apollo 11.
There are over 130 manuscript notes in various hands logging the results or status of various action items. Issues include "Open Engineering" such as space suit modifications (mods), PLSS mods, biological isolation garment mods, and life raft changes. A LM problem list contains the status of the guidance computer, water gun issues, the PLSS interface and oxygen leaks, cabin fan, carbon dioxide sensor, and various valves and assemblies. There were similar problems with the CSM such as water tank and relief value issues, COAS, and camera mounting problems. An "Open Issues" section addresses UV visor protection concerns, whether lunar surface items will be too hot to be handled by space suit gloves ("Yes, they will be too hot!"), space suit donning exercise, the reason for Armstrong's intra-vehicular glove change, Aldrin's helmet inspection, the status of the crew's emergency oxygen masks, and bio-instrumentation.
