Flown SRB Parachute Test Cover

by John Macco
15th of January 2012

This space cover shown has an interesting history. A dealer of space covers made contact with someone at the National Parachute Test Range at El Centro, Ca. to possibly carry some covers on the B-52 that was going to make the parachute test drops. The covers were flown on the B-52 and were actually on the solid rocket booster when the main drogue parachute failed to open at 25,000 feet when it was dropped from the B-52 for the test. A word document outlining the full story is available via email.
