AS-501. Apollo 4 Saturn 5 rocket in the VAB high bay. Still has the black upper roll pattern (like AS-500F) on the S-1C intertank skirt, which will be painted over in white before flight. The tops of the engine fin fairings haven't yet been put on and the CM seems to be getting lowered to top off the stack!
