Out at the pad…

We were taken out to only a few hundred feet from the vehicle for about 45 minutes of oooo-ing and awww-ing. During Apollo days, we’d be about 1500 feet from the Saturn, which looked about as big though. (Unfortunately, the Saturns were enveloped by a secondary service structure meant to get engineers up to any possible part of the rocket. That would only be rolled away a day or so before launch, so the tours could never see it up close).
