Up close to the Flight Director's console at KSC (post 34)

On the floor of the KSC Launch Control Center’s Firing Room 3, the journalists in our press tour are able to walk up to the flight director’s console as well as the other positions. It seems very high tech-- 1969 version. We are then taken to observe the firing room preparing the Apollo 12 launch vehicle. On the floor there we look up and are able to see the glassed-in observation area reserved for VIPs during the launch. We go to that observation booth and look down on Firing Room 2 where there are a few controllers and other personnel working.
