Does anyone know the whereabouts of the flown David Clark Shuttle Ejection Escape Suits that were used during the first four shuttle flights? Thanks.

From our 2006 article, STS-1 artifacts, 25 years later:
Both Young and Crippen donned for launch and landing modified pressure suits originally designed for the U.S. Air Force's SR-71 high-altitude reconnaissance aircraft. The orange-brown outfit that Young wore is now on display at Space Center Houston, the public visitor center for NASA Johnson Space Center.

The similar suit that Crippen wore is believed to have been returned to the Air Force. Its present location is unknown.
