Description

The unmanned Apollo 4 (AS-501) was the first launch of the Saturn V booster and the first flight from Launch Pad 39A at John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Merritt Island, Florida. Apollo 4 was a test flight of the Saturn V, which was used in future mission to send men to the Moon. The flight was launched on November 9, 1967, although it was initially planned for late 1966. Apollo 4 was delayed by development issues with S-II, the second stage of the Saturn V rocket, and to a lesser extent, by wiring defects discovered in the Apollo spacecraft.
