Oshkosh 2017 Salute to Apollo Patch

PLU: #2268960100000

Price : $2.50

This 3" round patch shows the Apollo spacecraft in lunar orbit above a crescent moon, encircled by the names of the Apollo crew members attended the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017: Frank Borman, Walt Cunningham, Dick Gordon, Fred Haise, Joe Engle, Al Worden, Buzz Aldrin, Gene Kranz, Jim Lovell, Jim McDivitt, and Harrison Schmitt.

Kranz’s name appears in white as he served on mission control’s White Team while working to bring the crew of Apollo 13 safely home. The D in McDivitt’s name is a nod to the type of mission he flew.

The Apollo program had a set of objectives, lettered A through J. On Apollo 9, McDivitt and his crew members flew the D mission: manned command and lunar module development in low-Earth orbit. Apollo 9’s original mission patch also featured a red D in McDivitt’s name.
