flying craft used by astronauts for fly-over photo missions and exploration. Just like the
Jet Propulsion Pak, this "white" plastic molded craft would glide across a

rotate as the Recono Jet glides along. Comes with decals with a USA - 1 label, a
"red" stripe that wraps around the engine housing like a band and a control
This set also came with two small "chrome"
plated hand-held accessories, a space camera and a lazer pistol. I have the lazer pistol
with "red" and "black" painted details. Or some had just
"black" painted accents over the chrome body. Everything on this card was unique
and was not offered in any other package or set combination.
This card sported two small photos of Major Matt Mason
flying the recono jet. One of these pictures has Matt hovering above Sgt. Storm with his
visor raised. Was he trying to get a breath of fresh space vacuum? Surely this wasn't
Major Matt, but an expendable crew member who's visor must have fogged up and he couldn't
see where he was going. We can only wonder how long it'll take him to implode.
