John Blaha
NASA-3, September 16, 1996 - January 22, 1997

John Blaha took these three flags—U.S., Russia, and Texas—and the Mir-22 mission patch (top, center) on the STS-79 flight to Mir then transferred them to the Russian space station. The white bag arrived on a Progress Resupply Vehicle with personal items including video tapes (above, on bag) of the 1996 World Series and the October 27, 1996, NFL game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins. The photo (center) is of the Mir-22 crew.
