STS-51G - Unknown maker

STS-51-G was the eighteenth flight of NASA's Space Shuttle program, and the fifth flight of Space Shuttle Discovery. The seven-day mission launched from Kennedy Space Center, Florida, on 17 June 1985, and landed at Edwards Air Force Base, California, on 24 June.

At first glance it appears to be a A-B Emblem version, however there are some slight differences, such as the line of stitching under each contrail. The wings of the Wright Flyer are a little more narrow.
