Apollo Suit Serial Numbers

Last revised 26 March 2005.

Each astronaut was assigned three suits for a particular mission: a Flight Suit, worn only during the mission; a Back-Up Suit; and a Training Suit. Some suits did double duty, most usually when an astronaut moved from a Back-Up crew to Primary crew for a later mission. The serial numbers of such re-used suits are highlighted in color, with a unique color for each suit that was used more than once. Usually, a suit that had been a Flight Suit for a Back-Up crew member became his Training Suit upon assignment to a subsequent Prime crew. There are exception, such as Don Eisele's Back-Up suit (S/N 011) from his Apollo 7 Prime crew assignment becoming his Flight Suit when he was assigned to the Apollo 10 Back-Up Crew.
