The Gemini gantry lowered
itself before launch to
rest on the ground. On GT-4
the gantry went to 45
degrees and stopped several
times. They finally traced
the problem to a circuit
breaker. Grumman engineers
came up with a simple
solution: A broomstick was
obtained, sawn in half,
which provided a
well-insulated circuit
breaker closer. Two Grumman
engineers held the circuit
breaker closed with the
broomsticks and the gantry
went all the way to the
ground permitting launch of
the spacecraft. This is one
of the two halves of said
broomstick mounted on a
plaque and given to Jim
McDivitt. The other half is
owned by the estate of Ed
White, Jim's co-pilot.
Grumman engineers loved
these gag gifts and
presented the pilots with
them when they returned.
