    Description

    Rare large-size U.S.flag flown to the moon.

    Apollo 12 Flown Large American Flag Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Alan Bean. This 16" x 11" U.S. flag accompanied Conrad, Gordon, and Bean as they made their journey to the moon on our second manned visit. Almost aborted when the Saturn rocket was hit by lightning, one of Apollo 12's main missions was to retrieve data from the Surveyor 3 already on the moon. Signed and inscribed in the lower right corner by Alan Bean: "Flown to the Moon/ Apollo XII, Nov. 1969/ Alan L Bean". This large size flag is much rarer than the more-often seen 6" x 4" versions, very well-suited for display. Mounted above an embroidered "Yankee Clipper" mission insignia patch and an engraved plate. As framed, 20.5" square. Excellent condition.
