    Space Shuttle Enterprise (ALT) Flown American Flag on Presentation Certificate with Signed Color Photo. Two items, as follows.
    (1) A 5.75" x 4" cloth U.S. Flag mounted on a 10" x 14" printed certificate bearing the signature of a NASA official dated "May 1978" and printed signatures of the program pilots: Fred Haise, Gordon Fullerton, Joe Engle, and Richard Truly. Between June and October, 1977, these four astronauts alternated in crews of two, performing the first manned captive-active and free flight tests in the unpowered Enterprise orbiter. These tests took place at the Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base and were a very important phase in the development of the final design of the Space Shuttle orbiter. This "Special Award - Approach and Landing Test Program" was presented to Roderick H. Phillips: " recognition of your outstanding contributions to the achievements of the Approach and Landing Test Program..." Four small color 35mm contact prints are mounted to each side of the flag at top; we have not encountered another of these with those added photos. ALT flown memorabilia is not common. Toning and edge roughness, overall fine condition.
    (2) A 10" x 8" color NASA litho print, "First Crew for the Space Shuttle Approach and Landing Tests (ALT)" signed: "To Hank--/ Best wishes,/ Fred Haise" and "Gordon Fullerton". Excellent.
