NASA Astrovan
"Crew transport Vehicle"

NASA Astrovan Airstream Classic Motorhome

NASA Astrovan


The NASA Astrovan (a.k.a. Crew transport Vehicle)! Custom ordered by NASA from Airstream to accomodate the larger Space Shuttle crews. The early shuttle flights had smaller crews so the Apollo-era transport van was used. The original NASA transport van was a custom Clark-Cortez motorhome.

Since 1984, every person that has flown in the Space Shuttle has ridden in the "Astrovan".
