Space Shuttle Astrovan Head Cover

Triangular-shaped blue cloth headrest cover, measuring approximately 11.5 x 13.5, used on NASA’s Airstream astrovan while transporting shuttle crew members to the launch pad. Label on the reverse is notated “108245-1, Towel, Airstream, 8-83, UOP, Miami.” This towel was used on the astrovan until after transporting the ill-fated STS 51-L crew to the Challenger in 1986. After the tragedy, and already scheduled for a total remodification, the vehicle was gutted and totally rebuilt. Accompanied by a green 51L NASA Causeway vehicle permit. In fine condition, with uniform light fading to cover. RR Auction COA.
