Apollo 8 erection of the AS 503 vehicle

The beginning of the big deception.

This film footage shows the erection of the Saturn-V, AS 503, used for the Apollo 8 flight later that year. This footage came without sound but it gives a good impression how amateurishly the mighty Saturn-V rocket was assembled. Fact, did you know that technical  data and drawings of how the mighty Saturn-V rocket was build are lost. Watching the video it seems more like a hollow tube conected together with nuts and bolts.
