Boeing’s work on the Saturn first stage booster took place at NASA Michoud Assembly Facility near New Orleans.  Parts for the booster were shipped to Michoud from the company’s Wichita plant, as well as from subcontractors around the country.  Once completed, each booster was loaded onto a covered barge to begin a week-long trip around the Florida Keys to the Kennedy Space Center, where it was assembled with the other two stages.  (Boeing photo)
