Apollo 8 erection of the AS 503 vehicle


Assembling the mighty Saturn V.

This film footage shows the erection of the AS 503 vehicle in 1968. Better known as the mighty Saturn V, used later that year to launch the Apollo 8. This footage came without sound but gives a good impression how amateurishly the mighty Saturn V rocket was assembled. Did you know that NASA lost all paper work and blueprints of how the Saturn V rocket was build.
