Rick Husband tribute in Amarillo

Amarillo,Texas - The Texas Air & Space Museum at English Field held a special tribute to shuttle commander Rick Husband Friday.

The museum displayed several pieces of NASA memorabilia: a shuttle training aircraft that Husband trained in, a flight suit he wore during training flights, and his personal vehicle.

Many of the items displayed were from the private collection of James Holt of Pampa, who is an avid collector of NASA items.

Friday marked the 10th anniversary of when Rick Husband died with his crew mates on board space shuttle Columbia.
