Date: 05/76, Manuf. S/N: 001, Manuf. P/N: BLD-999040-3, Manuf. Code Ident. 17996." The sides of the tank are marked "Engineering Test." An additional inspection tag, marked "Do Not Open, Except in a Controlled Environmental Facility," is taped on the side. In fine condition. Accompanied by a two-page excess property list for "Contract NAS9-14000," naming this tank as item #14 with a cost of $10,000. Also includes a large wooden shipping crate, with related paperwork taped to the lid. This lightweight composite spun tank would have been used to store pressurization gasses for the Space Shuttle's Reaction Control System (RCS), which used thrusters to provide attitude control for the spacecraft.

Due to the size, weight, and/or fragile nature of this item, we ask that you call RR Auction for a shipping quote.
