NOTES
1. AS-500F returned to VAB on 8 June 1966 because of Hurricane Alma threat. After two days it was back on pad 39A where it remained until mid-Oct 1966.
2. AS-501 was stacked using S-II spacer due to late delivery of S-II-1. 501 was destacked twice - once for spacer and once for S-II checks.
3. AS-502 initial stacking used spacer due to late S-II-2 arrival.
4. AS-503 was de-stacked after initial stacking to allow S-II to go back to MSFC for man-rating checks.
5. AS-510 was moved from high bay 1 to high bay 3 prior to stacking of spacecraft.
6. AS-511 was initially rolled out on 13 December 1971 and was returned to VAB on 27 January 1972 to allow for RCS fuel leaks in SM to be fixed.
7. The S-IVB entries for Skylab 1 refer to the OWS and the spacecraft entry refers to the ATM, MDA etc.
