This Apollo Block II spacecraft, consisting of Command and Service Modules 119, was the last of its kind built. Designated as the Skylab rescue vehicle, it could be launched in a five-man configuration, with two extra couches under the regular seats. A rescue crew of two would link up with the Skylab workshop and bring back a long-duration crew whose CSM had become unusable. After Skylab, CSM 119 became the backup for the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) spacecraft (CSM 111).
CSM 119 was transferred by NASA to the Smithsonian in 1977 and immediately placed on display at the NASA Kennedy Space Center.
