The flare stack used to burn off excess hydrogen during

The fixed service structure with the crew access arm extended showing where the crew compartment of the Shuttle Orbiter would be located if it was on the pad.
View of the crew access arm and the white room through which astronauts would enter the orbiter. The fabric covers the opening that would be fit snug against the orbiter over the side hatch.
