views of the mounts for the triplex air storage spheres. There were two sets of three spheres (each set of three comprising a "triplex" set, similar if not identical to those used later on the Block I Saturn I first stage).

Picture 3 of 3.

The mounts are located directly above the multiple pneumatic coupling balcony fittings.

The Michigan Space & Science Center was apparently allocated this Redstone in 1977 (based on the markings on the wall; the MSSC was on the Jackson Community College campus, accounting for the "JCC Space Center").
