Have recently been able to compile several Space Shuttle mission official flight kit manifests (OFK) that are not currently located on the Resources page and wanted to share with all. Hopefully this will be interesting for those that have flown presentation items from these flights.

Feel free to post any other OFK manifests you have from other flights not otherwise available. Enjoy.

In chronological order of mission launch date:

Neat! A few questions pop up reading these, but the burning one is: What does the payload specialist pin look like (41D, presented to Charlie Walker)? This is the first I've heard of non-career astronauts receiving an astronaut pin of sorts....

Thanks for uploading those. I was interested to see the Silver Snoopy numbers, which I see are mostly lower - 0 to 100 - on the earlier flights where 140 to 200 was more typical on later missions.

STS-49 stands out though with an amazing 716 Silver Snoopys flown.

Thanks again for finding and posting these OFKs! The STS-41G manifest has created more questions about a particular medal I have though.

Any chance this data gets added to the archive here on this site?

I would be happy to add them to our archive, and host the documents on our server for posterity, if agreeable.

Please post a link once these are archived on cS. Scribd wants me to subscribe in order to download, which I don't want to do...

Another interesting thing popped up: "astronaut wings" were presented to Gary Payton, even though he was a payload specialist. Air Force astronaut wings, perhaps (even though his isn't specified, while it's specified Navy astronaut wings went to Buchli and Air Force to Shriver and Onizuka)?
