Apollo Command Module


The Apollo Command Module on display at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, number 007A, is the first production-line capsule delivered to NASA for testing and training. It was originally identical to spacecraft 012, in which astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee died in a fire on January 27, 1967. From 1968 to 1972, nine astronaut crews returned to Earth in Apollo Command Modules after journeying to the Moon.

Photographer Lyle Jansma started creating 360º views of cockpits in 2005, and has documented historic aircraft in several collections, including the Heritage Flight Museum, Museum of Flight, Tillamook Air Museum, Evergreen Air & Space Museum, and the National Museum of the Air Force. A full set of his cockpit views is available on the ACI Cockpit360º App for iPads and iPhones. Keep visiting this site (airspacemag.com/cockpits) as we add to the gallery below.
