Description


Scott Carpenter’s gray nylon flight jacket worn in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Omega watch company, size large, bearing several embroidered patches, including: a 50th anniversary 1957 Speedmaster Omega patch on the right breast, an official NASA ‘meatball’ logo patch on the right shoulder, an American flag patch on the left shoulder, a Mercury 7 mission patch on the left breast, with Carpenter’s Velcro name patch below, “Scott Carpenter, Astronaut,” and a large “The Real Space Cowboys” patch emblazoned across the upper back. Alpha Industries manufacturing tags are sewn into the collar area and inner right lining, and a maroon “Remove Before Flight” ribbon is attached to a zipper on the left arm. In fine condition, with trivial soiling. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance with an image of Carpenter wearing the jacket, in part: “I, Malcom Scott Carpenter…certify that this flight jacket…was worn by me in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Omega Watch company and also during the ‘Flight Jacket Tour’ as part of the promotion of the book ‘The Real Space Cowboys.’” Given its association with the Mercury program and a timepiece now made synonymous with NASA astronauts, this is an exceptionally attractive flight jacket worn on numerous occasions by the legendary pilot of the Aurora 7.
