Hi,
I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I am trying very hard to find out who was seated where at Mission Control for Apollo missions, I don't necessarily mean the trench, more the second and third rows, etc. for each phase of a flight.

Please help if you can, it would be very much appreciated!

Jester, please may I thank you for that. You are a tremendous help. I really do appreciate that, I mean that!
That list for Apollo 13 is so helpful. Please may I also ask if you are able to supply any others?
