Commemorative Envelope signed: "Jim Adamson", 6½x3½ Envelope with a rubber-stamped cachet honoring the SSV wind tunnel testing at Ames Research Center, postmarked Moffett Field, California, August 24, 1978, US "A" postage stamp affixed. James Adamson (b. 1946), graduated from West Point in 1969, after leading the Academy's pistol team to the national championship. He earned an M. S. in aeronautical engineering from Princeton in 1977. As fighter pilot in Vietnam, he earned many awards, including two Distinguished Service Crosses. He joined NASA as a test pilot and aerodynamics officer during the test phase of the space shuttle, hence his association with the wind tunnel test. He spent 334 hours in space on two shuttle missions: STS-28 (Columbia), a 5-day classified mission in 1988; and STS-43 (Atlantis), which set a new record for payload boosted into orbit in 1991. After performing important research and administrative duties for NASA, he moved to the private sector in 1992, where his posts included President and CEO of Lockheed (1994) and Chief Operating Officer of the United Space Alliance (a Lockheed - Rockwell consortium contracted to NASA) in 1995. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
