Should this thread be moved to the SpaceX Missions Section instead of the SpaceX General Section?

Ask the mods since it is a pinned duplicate thread. It would require some work to merge the multiple threads together.

Ah, so JRTI1 was retired following the launch failure.

To clarify:
Flight 14 was JRTI1
Flight 17 was JRTI1
Flight 21 (Vandenberg), was JRTI2
https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2016/01/spacex-launch-jason-3/

and Flight 26 was OCISLY
Thank you for posting this information, I used it to update the first post with the correct name of the barge ASDS for each sea landing attempt.

Duplicate? I didn't think it was duplicate. Do tell...

Well we have four threads of this one (http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=40231.0) that is the same or similar to the newer one im posting this reply in.

So they need to be merged one way or the other.

This thread is specifically to record past launches.  We were only going to show a limited amount of recent launches (current year?) in the manifest thread.

OK I see what you mean.

Manifest Update AND DISCUSSION (emphasis mine) has 4 threads because when a thread gets to a certain size it becomes difficult  to work with and we start a new one. So 3 of those are NOT dups, they are archives.

And scrubs (another thread we have), launch log and manifest are different things... it would be very unwieldy to try to merge all of them together.

No merging needed.

Moving it to missions? could argue that either way.

Maybe good to note that F9-20 (or should this be 21?) Orbcom2 is now on Display and thus retired
Also there are reports on Reddit that a 4th static fire might have taken place for jcsat-14
And Reddit seem to have some core id's that might be useful to mention here too, especially when reuse starts happening...
The redditors report test fire #4 for JCSAT-14. 

Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'....
Do you have link to source?

Edit: I searched Reddit, Twitter, everywhere but found nothing...

Zucal reported a firing after Amos 6 came down. From the reddit thread above,

Falcon 9 Flight 29 - AMOS-6 (not verified)
payload mass: 5,500 kilograms, orbit: geosynchronous [97]
  S) 2016-09-01, Failure during static fire, loss of payload (the one where the static fire went kaboom) [97]
Top post updated for AMOS-6 failure  :'(

As for JCSAT-14 static fires, do we have a source with dates for each one after the first 3?

Foust says SpaceX is up to seven firings of the Flight 21 JCSAT-14 first stage as of Sept 13.

  D) 2014-05-10 - 2015-06-20, Delay due to helium leak, range, re-test on the satellites [16,17]

Second date there should be 2014?

Just a nit-pick on the wording. It looks like the description is it exploded during the static fire (as last step) I think it would be better:

S) 2016-09-01, Failure during static fire, loss of payload (the one where it went kaboom during prop loading) [97]

And it seems to be up to eight firings

Q: The first stage recovered from the JCSat-14 launch, a mission to GTO, has now been put through eight ignition sequences in Texas, with two more to go. Then what happens?

The questioner makes it sound like ten firings is public knowledge.
