    APOLLO 7

    Apollo 7 Flown American Flag Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Walt Cunningham, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. This 6" x 4" cloth U.S. flag flew along with crewmembers Wally Schirra, Donn Eisele, and Walt Cunningham on this eleven day mission, October 11-22, 1968, the first three-man crew in U.S. space history. Cunningham has signed on the lowest white stripe: "Carried with me on Apollo 7 Walt Cunningham". Launched atop a Saturn 1B rocket (another first), Apollo 7 was the shakedown cruise to test the newly redesigned Apollo command module. The success of this mission, after the tragic Apollo 1 launch pad fire, was encouraging to NASA and led to the launch of Apollo 8 to the moon just two months later. This flag circled the Earth 163 times and flew four million miles in space. Included with this lot is a Letter of Authenticity signed by Cunningham. Excellent.
