Available to US bidders only. Two items: a Shuttle TCS payload bay blanket, most likely flown, #V070-366505-016, measures 11 x 3.5, and is labeled “Scrap” on both sides in a technician’s hand; and four sections of flown System Tunnel, each measuring approximately 18.5″ long with various serial numbers printed on inside. Each tunnel portion retains original paint and NASA tags, with one tag cracked. Includes a United Technologies Part Installation Tag, describing the part as “Segment Subassembly, LH/RH, Cutout, Sngle, Therm.” In overall very good to fine condition, with expected wear from use. Blanket is accompanied by a copy of a NASA Nonconformance System report noting the scraping of the part as well as a red tag. The SRB systems tunnel, located at the 90° position of each SRB, houses the electrical cables associated with the E&I subsystem and the LSC of the Range Safety System (RSS). The tunnel provides lightning, thermal, and aerodynamic protection and mechanical support for the cables and the LSC.

Due to the size, weight, and/or fragile nature of this item, we recommend contacting RR Auction for a shipping quote.
