We present spectra covering the wavelength range 990 < λ < 1190 Angstroms for the LMC O9.7 Ib star HD 268605 (= Sk -67 005). The observations illustrate the high quality of data currently available from FUSE. They also demonstrate the capabilities of FUSE to provide time resolved spectroscopy of wind and photospheric lines never before explored for temporal variability in a systematic manner. The observations span several days, with one continuously sampled interval of more than 4 hours. The mean spectrum also serves as an excellent example of the dense information content of the FUSE spectral region. It contains a wealth of both stellar and interstellar lines which cover a wide range of ionization and, hence, physical conditions. This work is supported by NASA contract NAS5-32985.
