Overheard on scanner at viewing site that there was a fuel flow sensor issue... sounds like it was resolved about 15-20 minutes ago.

L2 has crews out at pad for GSE adjustment, could be that.

RP-1 and LOX loading has started.

Range currently red, looking to move some people.  Also working issue with the rocket cam system.  It doesn't sound like either are showstoppers.

Heard from a ground safety contact. I'd say it's pretty reliable.

L2 has rocketcam issue waived, to update.
