Here is the unofficial commemorative design for NASA 905's roll to Space Center Houston later this month! Backdropped by the starry big Texas sky, the 747-123 rolls toward her final home at Space Center Houston. The colors of the Lone Star State fly proudly from the flight deck, representing the Space City home of the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft and her legacy.
Her previous mission is honored in silhouette, having safely flown six space shuttle orbiters back and forth across the nation for the purposes of testing, operation and display. Those six orbiters are represented in the Big Dipper constellation, along with a seventh star, signifying the new, permanent partner of SCA-905: the newly-renamed shuttle mockup Independence.

I've ordered 100 patches, so if anyone is interested in ordering any ($5 each), feel free to contact me at astro95media@gmail.com.

Gorgeous patch, Nathan. I've always been a fan of the "less is more" school of thought and you nailed it.

Thanks Greg! NASA 905's awesomeness really speaks for itself. Honoring the legacy was easy.

Nathan, great patch and great work! I purchased you Discovery patch when it came to Virginia. That patch truly made the fly in memorable!

I'm glad! Can't believe it's been nearly two years. That was a fantastic week!

Here's the embroidered patch. They should be here within a couple of weeks.
