Description


Scott Carpenter’s personally-owned and -worn blue flight jacket, medium regular size, signed on the front left pocket in black felt tip by Carpenter. The insulated zippered jacket features front pockets, a left arm pocket, and ribbed wool cuffs, collar, and waistband. The original Land Mfg. Co. Flite Wear tag is sewn into the collar area. In fine condition, with evidence of patch removal to left chest. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Farthest Reaches. In 1954, Carpenter was appointed to the US Naval Test Pilot School at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland, and worked as a test pilot in the Electronics Test Division conducting flight test projects in a variety of Navy airplanes. After attending the Naval Air Intelligence School in 1957 and 1958, Carpenter was named Air Intelligence Officer for the USS Hornet and chosen for Project Mercury two years after. A decidedly handsome vintage flight jacket belonging to the fourth American to reach space and the second to orbit the Earth.
