In Episode 3, we see the Apollo 7 crew driving their cars across their rocket at the launch pad. For this scene, they went to Launch Complex 34, where Apollo 7 was launched. The site was cleaned up and the rocket and gantry were added in post production. The launch platform still remains to this day. See more »


Numerous shots of the booster show a Saturn 5 instead of the Saturn 1-B that was actually used for the flight. See more »


Wally Schirra: STC? CDR. Hope you guys are keeping an eye on the winds. They looked pretty strong coming up here
Skip Chauvin: Uh, roger that, Apollo 7. We're still in the window for launch.
Wally Schirra: [cynically] Go fever.
