    Description

    Apollo 15 Flown U.S. Air Force Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Al Worden, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. A 5.5" x 4" cloth USAF flag that flew to the moon on Apollo 15, very appropriately with an all-Air Force crew- Dave Scott, Jim Irwin, and Al Worden. The flag features the Air Force seal with thirteen stars surrounding on a blue background; the design was officially adopted in 1951 by President Harry S Truman. Worden has signed in the lower white portion of the seal: "AMW Apollo 15". He has also signed in silver on the lower edge: "Flown to the Moon aboard Apollo 15 Jul 26 - Aug 7, 1971/ Al Worden CMP". This is the first flown Air Force flag that Heritage has had the pleasure to offer. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed "Al Worden" on his letterhead, stating (in part): "I hereby certify that the United States Air Force flag included with this letter and marked with my initials and flight number went to the moon aboard Apollo 15 in the spacecraft 'ENDEAVOUR'. It remained in the command module during the lunar orbit phase of the flight. It has been in my personal possession since then."
