Marcopolo 2 launch sew-on patch, 1990
Marcopolo 2 launch sew-on patch, 1990. This patch commemorates the Delta II rocket launch of BSB's second satellite, Marcopolo 2, from Cape Canaveral, on August 17 1990. This second satellite was required by the Independant Broadcasting Authority (IBA) franchise conditions to serve as a back-up for the satellite Marcopolo 1. Unlike the launch of Marcopolo 1 a year earlier, only one person from BSB was sent to Florida to watch the launch, as by this time the money at BSB was drying up. British Satellite Broadcasting space patch.
