One thing I find interesting about this actually relates to White's EVA on Gemini 4:  he described being within 6 feet of Gemini's thrusters while they were firing!

Amazing how the CBS reporter nailed the cause - electrical short in a 100% oxygen environment.  This report was probably an hour or two after the fire that night. 

Very painful to watch.   :'(

Fly Me to the Moon

NASA Johnson
Published on Jan 26, 2018

Human spaceflight inspires humans to create art, in many forms—a collection of fiber art quilts entitled Fly Me To The Moon has been touring the country since late 2016 with more stops on the schedule.  A group of those quilts was displayed at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston a year ago in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 1 fire; curator Susanne Jones comments on the artistic elements of some of the pieces as well as the educational value of the exhibit to a nation inspired by space exploration.

Is there a report available that indicates the date(s) when the AS-204 first stage and second stage for Apollo 1 were mounted on LC-34?  Thank you.
