The First Saturn V On the Launchpad

Boeing, McDonnell Douglas and North American Aviation collaborated to develop and produce the mammoth 363-foot Saturn V rocket that propelled the Apollo spacecraft to the moon in 1969. All 15 S-1Cs were built between 1965 and 1975. Twelve were used on the Apollo missions, and the 13th, in 1973, placed Skylab in Earth orbit. The remaining rockets were placed on display.
