Saturn V S-II (Second) Stage Gallery


View of the "dollar hatch" on the S-II LH2 tank forward bulkhead, visible between two legs of the stage erecting sling. This being an early S-II stage, it has honeycomb insulation on the hatch.

Also note the two clevises joining the stage erecting sling to the forward hoisting frame.

The finer screen behind the erecting sling appears to have been added when the stage was placed on display. After being moved to the Davidson Center, the screen was removed, offering a better view of the hatch.
