“Probably my favourite picture is of Cape Canaveral shown through the petals of the SIV-B. Cunningham took the picture but I had to fly the Apollo command module to get in position so he could sight down between the petals and see Cape Canaveral in the background.” W.Schirra

The primary objectives for the Apollo 7 engineering test flight were simple: Demonstrate command and service module, or CSM, and crew performance; demonstrate crew, space vehicle and mission support facilities performance during a crewed CSM mission; and demonstrate CSM rendezvous capability.

Condition: small mark to bottom edge near right corner, otherwise mint
