Default Shuttle, Houston: Personalized copies now available

Moderators please note: Post pre-approved by Doug Reeves

Great news! We have partnered with our pals Emily and Mike at Speleobooks to provide autographed/specially inscribed copies of Ironflight's (Paul Dye) book at a great price. Paul is a long-time contributor to this forum and Editor-at-Large of KITPLANES magazine. The book is a compilation of stories from his 33 years with NASA's Space Shuttle program...from STS-1 through STS-135.

Please go to the Speleobooks site to check out the details and order:

Glad to see some folks taking advantage of this - we’ve been trying to figure out a way to get folks autographed copies in a world with no in-person events, and having Speleobooks step in to help is making that possible! I signed a bunch today, so there seems to be a good response so far - thanks!
