STS-86 SPACE SHUTTLE ATLANTIS LA POSTALE DE NUIT NASA SPACE PATCH

STS-86 LA POSTALE DE NUIT

Personal patch for Jean-Loup Chretien. The "Postale de Nuit" was created at the end of WW II by Didier Daurat, a famous pilot among others like  St. Exupery and Mermoz, who both flew the former Aeropostale between the 2 wars, as well as Daurat. He probably chose that name in remembering  of St. Ex. and his famous book "Vol de Nuit". The owl came naturally as  the bird who flies and sees in the dark. Flying the Postale is for me a  tremendous excitement, as I always feel like these famous pilots are  still around us. Payload specialist on STS-86, also Soyuz T-6 and TM-7  to Mir.
