1965.02.05 - Gemini spacecraft No. 3 was moved to complex 19 and hoisted into position atop Gemini launch vehicle 3.

Test operations began February 9 with premate systems tests, which lasted until February 13.

These were followed by a premate Simulated Flight Test, February 14-16. Data from this testing were compared with data from Spacecraft Systems Tests at McDonnell and predelivery acceptance tests at vendors' plants. The purpose of these tests was to integrate the spacecraft with the launch complex and take a last detailed look at the functioning of all spacecraft systems (especially those in the adapter) before the spacecraft was mechanically mated to the launch vehicle.
