As with the other early Shuttle flights, during the launch of the STS-3 mission the crew wore USAF high-altitude
escape suits with an embroidered mission patch attached.
The set of patches worn by Jack Lousma on the STS-3 flight was sold at auction, allowing us to
see the detail of the mission patch he wore. Since this patch differs from the standard AB Emblem patch
it is described below as a possible Crew Patch
In addition to the patch worn by the crew, there is also an Initialed STS-3 Crew Patch. This was
manufactured in a limited run by AB Emblem explicitly for the crew.
