And this is a good reminder that just because one of your fellow space enthusiasts occasionally voices doubts about the SpaceX schedule announcements or is cautious about believing SpaceX has licked a problem before actually seeing proof that's true, it doesn't mean they hate SpaceX.

Interesting view looking down at the orbiter, MLP, and flame trench, and of the underside of the MLP.

Thanks Ronsmytheiii.

They've now lowered the oxygen vent on to the ET, indicating to me they're comfortable about hail issues.  They are cranking on all of the xenons now, to aide in inspections I reckon.
Quite the spectacle!
