F-1 Engine Gallery


View of the combustion chamber taken from the catwalk. Unfortunately, there was some lens flare, but I did not review the picture before I moved on, and I only took one picture of this view.

F-107-1 is displayed with no injector, offering a view of what appears to be the LOX dome. Compare this picture to an F-1 injector (e.g., the one in the F-1 at Stennis).

Vince Wheelock speculates that, as a test engine, this F-1 was torn down at some point in its life and when it was reassembled, the injector was not installed (and perhaps became a display piece on someone's wall).
