The Saturn IB carrying Apollo 7 begins to rise off the launch pad on October 11, 1968, as seen by a camera on the launch tower on Compex 34 at the Kennedy Space Center. It was the first manned flight in the Apollo Program.

Another great view that I have not seen up to now. Keep them coming!

I'd like to see some photos from the Saturn I launches, say SA-10. Any of the uncommon shots. Thanks.

Another excellent photo! Thanks for sharing!

Is that the blockhouse slightly behind the Command Service Module (CSM)?
