F-1 Engine Test Stand (Post-Demolition) Gallery


Overall view of the F-1 Engine Test Stand RP-1 tank (far right).

The RP-1 tank is approximately 2/3 the height of the LOX tank and is the lower tank, visible under the thicker work platform in this pre-removal photo of the F-1 Engine Test Stand. See "Floor Plans - Fuel Tank Support, Fuel Platform, and LOX Platform Plans" and "Building Section" drawings at HABS/HAER for additional information about the propellant tanks prior to their removal.

Google Maps link to the tank's location when I photographed it. (As I write this page, only the overhead view has been updated to show the RP-1 tank; the 45° view has not been so updated. Since the 45° view cannot be disabled by encoding a URL, you will need to turn it off manually to see the RP-1 tank.)
