N.B. After completing a successful liftoff for NASA's first manned flight in the Apollo program (first photograph), the Saturn IB space vehicle carrying the Apollo 7 astronauts is photographed more than 35,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean by an airborne precision photographic system aboard a C-135 aircraft (second photograph). This Airborne Lightweight Optical Tracking System (ALOTS) provides 'information on launch vehicle during the early launch, stage separation and reentry phases of the flight' (NASA caption).
