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.

The camera crew interviews Walt Cunningham, who is introduced as the pilot of the Lunar Excursion Module. While some might think that this means that he is in charge of flying the craft, this is not the case. A LEM pilot is much like a pilot in a harbor, who stands next to the ship's captain and advises him in navigating the channel. The LEM pilot is in charge of navigation and the monitoring of the status and systems. The one who actually flies the LEM is the LEM commander.
