I have done several service calls for a man by the name of Georg von Tiesenhausen, he is one of the last surviving members of the vonBraun rocket team, he was responsible for the design of the hold down arm seen in the video.

This clip is raw from Camera E-8 on the launch umbilical tower/mobile launch program of Apollo 11, July 16, 1969. This is an HD transfer from the 16mm original. The camera is running at 500 fps, making the total clip of over 8 minutes represent just 30 seconds of actual time.
