A Saturn-IB first stage is unloaded from NASA Barge “Compromise” after arrival at Cape Kennedy on August 15, 1966. This stage was originally intended to launch the first crewed Apollo mission (AS-204/Apollo 1). After the January 1967 fire, this stage was stored until it was later re-scheduled for use on the first flight test of the Lunar Module (Apollo 5), which launched on January 22, 1968.
