    Cue Card flown on the first free flight test of the Space Shuttle prototype Enterprise.

    Space Shuttle Enterprise Approach and Landing Test Crews-Signed Flown Cue Card Presented to, and Directly from the Personal Collection of, Astronaut John Young, Signed and Certified. A framed display of 19" x 15" that includes the following: a 06/01/77-dated, 10.5" x 8" cue card showing a diagram of the spacecraft; an embroidered crew patch; a 6.5" x 4.5" color photo of Enterprise; and a printed caption card that reads: "This cue card was installed in the cockpit of the Enterprise/ during ALT Free Flight I/ August 12, 1977." Beneath the cue card is handwritten: "To John- It took an outstanding stick to follow this thing/ all the way down. Thanks for doing it while we/ had the fun of flying it - We'll return the favor/ in March - June - Sept ... soon--" (March, June, and Sept are crossed out). It is signed: "Freddo" (Fred Haise); "Gordo" (Gordon Fullerton); "Joe" (Joe Engle); and "Richard" (Richard Truly). These four astronauts made up the two crews who spent much of 1977 in the Approach and Landing Tests of the shuttle. On the back, Young has signed: "From My Collection/ John W. Young". Overall condition is fine- there is some toning and glue leakage on the front. There is a tear on the back paper at Young's signature.
