This was actually the third Apollo mission launch occuring after AS-203 in chronological order, occuring on August 25, 1966. This was yet another unmanned mission with its primary goal of improving the equipment necessary to land on the moon. The launch worked perfectly this time, with much more comforting results than previous lift offs. The rockets total time in the aire was just under an hour and a half. The most notable improvement was the installation of the guidance/navigation system.
