Originally designated AS-204, the first mission in the Apollo manned lunar landing program was scheduled for launch on February 21, 1967. A tragic fire during a "plugs-out" launch simulation on January 27, 1967, claimed the lives of the three astronauts aboard. This led to a complete re-design of the Apollo command/ service module. It was not until Apollo 7, October 11-22, 1969, before the first American three-man mission took place.
