The scene begins approx. 48 seconds after launch, with the flames from the first stage partly obscured by cloud. The Saturn V quickly emerges and streaks above the KC-135. The film ends just after skirt separation.
(The silent film and Public Affairs audio were combined by Colin Mackellar. The film print was mirrored left to right, and was recorded at around 35fps. The mirroring was corrected and playback speed adjusted.)
