Apollo 9
As important as the flight of Apollo 7 and 8 were in qualifying the Command and Service Modules for operational flights both in Earth orbit and around the Moon, it was the flight of Apollo 9 that gave greater confidence to the prospect of actually completing the age old dream of landing men on the surface of the moon. In the spring of 1969 it was the first manned flight of the Lunar Module in Earth orbit, as well as the first flight of the complete Apollo Saturn stack that  brought the prospect of the  initial  landing mission just two flights later much closer to reality.
