Welcome to the Apollo Flight Journal, the companion to the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal. Like the Surface Journal, it is intended to be a resource for all those interested in the Apollo flights to the Moon, whether in a passing or scholarly capacity.

The journal presently covers eleven human flights of the Apollo program, relating the parts of the missions not on the lunar surface. As a "living document" it will continue to grow and evolve.


Apollo Documentation

In addition to the mission-specific documentation available on each journal's site, the AFJ includes scanned documents relevant to all missions.
