ELLISON S. ONIZUKA
Ellison Onizuka signs a special cover envelope honoring the space shuttle.
Special Cover Envelope signed: "Ellison S. Onizuka/NASA Astronaut 4-1-80", 6½x3½. Rubber stamped: "Miami Stamp Expo '80 Honoring the Space Shuttle ASDA Station Miami Beach, FL 33141 January 11 1980." Onizuka (1946-1986) flew aboard Discovery 51-C, January 24-27, 1985, the first shuttle mission with military objectives. Ironically, Challenger was scheduled for Mission 51-C, but thermal tile problems forced substitution of Discovery. Onizuka's next assignment was aboard Challenger 51-L, January 28, 1986, which exploded 73 seconds after liftoff, killing him and his six colleagues. Fine condition.
