The First Saturn V On the Launchpad
Peter Moss is correct, when I was at Kennedy in 1968 there were 3 crawlers - clearly seen in the this last photos. I belive that one was retired to serve as spare parts. LRW
This is supposed to be "Video: Shuttle Endeavor launches". Please send me the correct URL. firstname.lastname@example.org
If there were only two crawlers - then how come in the next 'shot' from altitude, looking to the VAB, we see one in the fore-ground and TWO more in the right background? That makes 3 by me...
As a programmer out of Goddard SFC outside DC, I would love to have more info on the pictures, dates, etc.
The majority of the full-up or under-assembly pictures of the Saturn V seem to be of Apollo 4 - aka AS-501, the first unmanned flight article. AS-501 was launched on 9 November 1967. It may not be so obvious, but a lot of the lab and 'assembly/testing' pictures are of mockup hardware, as evidenced by the lack of complete flight fixtures, dents, scratches, and peeling paint.
