 Walt Cunningham's T-38 Garment Bag

 

"This garment bag issued to Walt Cunningham by NASA was used in his T-38 and later for civilian travel.  It is hand signed by Walt in bold black sharpie as you can see in the right hand image.  This unusual item come with a letter of authenticity on Walt's personal stationary which is also hand signed and states....

"Long before our NASA T-38s were provided with luggage carriers, we used to pack for travel using a garment bag and the parachute survival kit. In the garment bag, we would pack anything dressy and one or two shirts. We would roll the bag up and place it above the pilot’s ejection seat. We would empty the survival kit and place the remainder of our travel gear in it.

After many trips, my original garment bag was quite worn. I had the parachute loft make me a new one about a year before I left NASA so I could use it in civilian travel. I used this new bag in the T-38 several times before leaving NASA and then for civilian travel for a couple of years. I have not used this garment bag for many years. It is still in excellent condition and has been in my possession since 1970."
