The launch processing team has set out to the launch site.


There was a now deleted photo posted on a forum showing SAST engineers standing in front of the Shanghai train station heading for some unknown launch site, with a banner that reads "Gaofen 10 satellite testing team".  ;)

So yeah, there should be a GF-10 heading up in the next 2-3 months.  ;)
So your thinking possibly the following from JSLC or TSLC:
2016
September or October - CZ-4B - TSLC, LC9 - GF-10 Gaofen-10
OR
September or October - CZ-2D - JSLC, LC43/603 - GF-10 Gaofen-10

Well, it looks like that this one is launching on August 30 GMT time...... (wee hours of the night on the 31st local time)

A2154/16 - A TEMPORARY RESTRICTED AREA ESTABLISHED BOUNDED BY: N302834E1090528-N302143E1094207-N292852E1092859-N293535E1085237 BACK TO START. VERTICAL LIMITS:GND-UNL. GND - UNL, 30 AUG 18:46 2016 UNTIL 30 AUG 19:11 2016. CREATED: 24 AUG 07:37 2016

Can someone check what launcher does this drop zone corresponds to? There are rumors that a CZ-2C will be used.  ;)

Well, this fairing drop zone (in red) seems close to the fairing drop zone for CZ-4C used for FY-3B (in green)
Fairing for CZ-2C (used for YG-18) was recovered to the South

Looks like date change, coordbox&time are same as old


Also, I'm guessing T-0 is closer to 1853 UTC because GF-3, FY-3C & Chuang Xin-3 that all launched on 4C had a 7ish min difference between notam start & T-0.

Any idea of what kind of bird this might be?

With the launch time at around 3 am here I can't guarantee that I can be awake at launch time, so someone please take a look at the usual Chinese news websites after 19:30 UTC if you can.  ;)

Wonder if it got delayed. No locals talking about Earthquakes I take it? That's usually a sign ;)

On 9ifly space forum, people are talking about some kind of problem with the rocket. But it looks like there was no launch. Automatic translation doesn't help much in this case.

All are speculations and not rumors. I doubt we will know whatever happened to it until those who know speaks out.  :-X
