Falcon Heavy has the demo flight and then this flight on the 30th.




Also Echostar is now NET Feb 3rd.
well thats better than q3!   still a 3 month frame tho that i wish could get narrowed down.

Erector was up today. Seems like the Feb 3rd date might stick, at least as far as pad preparation goes.

I heard a rumor an f9 was vertical this morning,  i can see how they got confused with the erector up.   this will be an awesome year for space flight

Echostar has been pushed back behind CRS 10, since CRS has a tighter launch schedule.

CRS10 is still net Feb 15. The hanger for 39A is larger and can support multiple Falcons simultaneously, so it allows them to be more flexible with launch order.
