  • Description

    This film shows backup Command Pilot Ed White (who did the space walk) and Pilot Michael Collins during the course of a simulated GT-7 mission on Saturday, 27 Nov, at cape kennedy.

    We have no dope at all, and so do not know which man is which.

    But, when the men are inserted into the capsule, the command pilot is at screen left in the left hand seat of the capsule as seen from camera position.

    Saturday's test brought a few minor electrical system bugs, but these have been ironed out and the latest word is that the GT-7 mission will go as scheduled.

    Enclosed is a variety of background material. Note in particular the top story which discusses the new space-suits the men will wear. These are clearly visible in the film, and are markedly different than previous suits. It is about the only thing that is different.
