The STS-113 Official Flight Kit (OFK)

November 11, 2002 — STS-113 delivers the Expedition Six crew and the P1 (P-One) Truss to International Space Station. The station's current residents, the Expedition Five crew, will return to Earth with Endeavour, wrapping a stay that spanned more than five months.

As with each shuttle mission, the STS-113 crew is flying their choice of souvenirs and mementos, stowed inside a middeck locker for the duration of the flight.

In addition to the usual patches and medallions, several items onboard mark the flight of John Herrington, the first American Indian astronaut. Flown on behalf of Herrington for various organizations and institutions, the keepsakes include eagle feathers, Chickasaw and Crow Nation flags, two arrowheads, wooden flutes and Hopi pottery.

The following manifest details the STS-113 Official Flight Kit, as provided by NASA:
