I was quite surprised (and a bit thrilled) to see the two shuttle fantasy patches I made up reproduced in the new Dennis Jenkins' book, "Developing an Icon." They show up on pages 38 and 40 of Vol III for STS-6 and STS-7.

I hope he knows they weren't real?

From Dennis:
Yes, I knew they were not real and at some point had included that info in the captions explaining they were representative of "tab" patches (there was a TDRS tab at one point, although different and I never found a good copy of it). That said, I must have deleted the words during one of my many late-night editing sessions. My apologies. I also never knew who did them and would be happy to give credit if the book is ever reprinted.

I didn't really think Dennis thought they were real, but it is just so cool to see them show up there. I suppose I will have to buy a new set if it gets reprinted and he gives me credit. LOL. But collectSPACE is credited, and I feel I am part of this community, so that is cool for now.

I wish I could see that TDRS tab. Are there any photos of it around?

I don't know if this falls under the topic of Space Shuttle Triangle patches or this topic, because this patch fits both. It fits the design paradigm of the red/gold logo tabs though the tab is a part of the patch. Acquired from a gentleman who had a neighbor who worked for Grumman in the 80s, has velcro backing.
