It's not me that's disagreeing. LRD (Landing and Recovery Division) is a valid acronym even if it is historic. My original post did say that it was abolished in 1972. By the same arguement as used by Jim, do we discard also FITH, FIDO, LOS and other acronyms from the Apollo era?
LRD is a valid acronym for Landing and Recovery Director, it was in use much longer and much more times as that so it is the primary definition. Landing and Recovery Division has now be relegated to a secondary or historical definition.
I created a document (see attachment) listing all acronyms used in space flight. The list is still 99.9% a cut & past from the NASA Acronym list. However, many acronyms currently used in this blog and elsewhere are not yet included. I will keep it updated by asking people to supply a translation of any acronym used in a post.You can even add by posting here. I will update the document time by time and attach the latest version to this post.Please write me or post in the thread if you have any suggestion or cheers,pagheca
