The Saturn IB and Saturn V first stages were manufactured at the Michoud Assembly Facility (MAF), located 24 kilometers (approximately 15 miles) east of downtown New Orleans, Louisiana. The basic manufacturing building boasted 43 acres under one roof. By 1964, NASA added a separate engineering and office building, vertical assembly building, and test stage building. By 1966, other changes to the site included enlarged barge facilities and other miscellaneous support buildings. The photograph shows Saturn V S-IC flight stages being assembled in the horizontal assembly area at the MAF.
