    VS The doors open of Cape Kennedy's moonport, the massive box structure which houses America's Saturn Five rocket and its new transporter. The scale of the giant caterpillars of the transporter is seen by the size of the engineers standing in foreground. Pan up the full scale model of Saturn Five rocket. Good aerial shots of the rocket being used for this rehearsal, moving very slowly over a specially constructed Crawlerway towards the launching pad, so slowly that it takes all day to move it. VS The caterpillar tracks on the causeway, rocket and transporter in the background. Low angle, looking up at rocket on the gantry. VS Night, with the full scale model of Saturn Five rocket on Launch Complex 39. (The rocket does not fire.) LS Line of lights at the launch site.
