Frontiers of Flight Museum release
Apollo 7 50th Anniversary

On October 11, 1968, NASA launched the Apollo 7 mission:

  • It was the first manned Apollo flight, with the first American three-man crew to go into space

  • Over the course of 11 days and 163 orbits, the crew exhaustively tested all the systems of the completely-redesigned Apollo Command Module

  • The mission was declared "101% successful" by NASA and paved the way for America's Moon landing less than a year later
On October 20, 2018, we will celebrate the Apollo 7 50th Anniversary at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas, Texas, home of the Apollo 7 spacecraft. Save the date.

All times are CT (US)
