Does anyone know who the Astronaut Support Personnel (ASP) were for STS-1, STS-2, STS-3 and STS-4?? It would be neat to find out who strapped in the astronauts during the shutle's test flights. Thanks you.

The first three test flights utilized back-up crews.

My guess would be that they were at the pad when the flight crew arrived. Not sure about STS-4.

Loren Shriver was in the white room to help the STS-1 crew board Columbia.

Any information on any of the shuttle flights would be greatly appreciated. I do have some of the ASP for some flights but not all of them. If any collectSPACE member knows of any ASP for flights, please post. Thank you.
