Pilot Jeff Moultrie in the captain's seat of NASA's
Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. Moultrie designed a ‘final mission’ patch for
his crew’s shuttle museum deliveries, as shared with collectSPACE.com.
The emblem, which was shared with collectSPACE.com, was designed by the captain of the modified Boeing 747 jumbo jet that will fly Discovery to Washington, D.C. next week. It will also serve as the official insignia for the similar deliveries of orbiters Enterprise and Endeavour later this month and year, respectively.
"We do have a crew patch for this series of missions," Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) chief pilot Jeff Moultrie told collectSPACE. "There's an approved NASA patch that we are going to be using for all three shuttle ferries."
