1964.12.03 - Plans for mockups of the Block II Apollo CSM


MSC approved plans put forth by North American for mockups of the Block II CSM. For the crew compartment mockup, the company proposed using the metal shell that had originally been planned as a simulator. Except for the transfer tunnel and lighting, it would be complete, including mockups of all crew equipment.

Mockup 12, the Block I lighting tool, would be modified to conform to the interior of Block II spacecraft.

- March 15, 1965 - crew compartment
- April 30, 1965 - interior lighting
- July 15, 1965 - Design Engineering Inspection (DEI)
