Standing the rocket garden at US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville is a Saturn I Block 2 Dynamic Test Vehicle, SA-D5. The first stage was modified to be a test stage for the Saturn IB rockets. The S-IV (second) stage was a hydrostatic (checking for pressure holding and leaks) and dynamics test stage. The capsule on top is the Apollo Boilerplate 27. The paint scheme on this booster does not correspond to any flown vehicles.
