Overall walk-around of the earth landing system (ELS).

Picture 1 of 7.

One of the differences between the Block I and Block II ELS is that the uprighting bags on the Block I Command Module were stored in silver canisters on Gusset 1 and Gusset 2, rather than on the upper deck. At left is the double canister (which held two uprighting bags) and the single canister (which held a single bag) is at right.
