Rollback reveals the Saturn V (post 35)

We then take a NASA bus to observe the roll back of the Mobile Service Structure (MSS) which has been surrounding the Saturn V rocket on Pad 39A. Our bus stops just before a road block manned by policemen. We get out to take photos as the huge gray metal gantry gradually pulls back from the pad. Unfortunately clouds come in and it is hazy. Afterwards we drive to a different vantage point where we have a beautiful view of the “naked” Saturn V which is scheduled to take off tomorrow. Then it is back to the KSC Press Site for the “Prelaunch Briefing.”
