Name Launch Vehicle Mission Name Remarks S-IB S-IC S-II S-IVB S-IU CM/SM LM
SA-201 Apollo 1A Integrity and compatibility test of Saturn IB and Apollo spacecraft. 1 201 201 009 -
CSM 010 was used for tests 010
SA-202 Apollo 2 Re-entry test under lunar return flight conditions. 2 202 202 011 -
SA-203 Apollo 3 Operational tests on the S-IVB stage. 3 203 203 - -
SA-204 Apollo 1 (initially)
Apollo 5 (eventually)
The launch vehicle has originally been scheduled for the Apollo 1 mission. But the Apollo 1 mission was cancelled due to a fire during a ground test which killed the crew inside. SA-204 was therefore assigned to the Apollo 5 mission: the first LM flight test. 4 204 204 012

LM-2 was meant to be used in low Earth orbit to test the techniques of separation, rendezvous, and docking with the command and service module. LM-2 was the last of two LM vehicles to perform all systems validation tests. Its mission was cancelled because of the complete success of the first flight with LM-1 (Apollo 5). LM-2 can currently be seen at the National Aeronautics and Space Museum, Washington DC LM-2

This is the H-series LM 9, which is on display at the Saturn V Center at KSC. It was originally scheduled for Apollo 15, but was replaced with LM 10 which was a J-Series "extented stay" LM. It currently is configured as "built by Grumman --- ready to go to the moon" LM-9
