The first manned Saturn IB flight lifed Apollo 7 into Earth orbit on 11th October 1968. The primary task of this mission was to check out the new Apollo craft that would be used for the up-and-coming Moon flights. Its crew of Wally Schirra, Donn Eisele and Walter Cunningham spent nearly 11 days in orbit, travelling 4.5 million miles / 7,242,000 km and made 163 revolutions of the Earth. In all five Saturn IB rockets were used for American space projects. Besides Apollo 7, three flights to the Skylab space-station were made in 1973, and the final launch as part of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project in 1975.
