Description


Impressive American flag flown during splashdown of the Apollo 15 mission, 10.5 x 7.25, affixed to a 16 x 12 presentation mount, signed in the border below the flag in black felt tip, "Presented to me by Mission Control, Al Worden, Apollo 15." Presentation inscription along the top of the mount reads, "Flown at splashdown of Apollo 15," and along the bottom, "To Al Worden-with respect and admiration, from the men of mission control." In fine condition, with a pair of staple marks to the bottom right corner of the mount, and a small spot of dampstaining to lower edge of the mount; the flag remains gorgeously preserved. Following his twelve-day mission aboard the Apollo 15 spacecraft, Worden and his crew splashed down in the north Pacific Ocean on August 7, 1971. Once aboard the recovery ship, the USS Okinawa, this grand flag was presented to the mission CMP as a warm and patriotic reminder of a job well-done. The Leon Ford Collection.
