A flown section of shuttle wing insulation from one of the orbiters. Section measures approximately 15.5 x 11 x 5 and bears a serial number of 001, and decommissioned with red paint. The outer surface is made of Inconel, selected for its excellent durability in radiant heat applications. The insulator mounts directly behind the leading edge and would protect the aluminum structure of the orbiter’s wing. This part would have been replaced after several missions and having logged millions of miles. In fine condition. RRAuction COA.
