Here is a comparison of the Starlink L18 and L20 S1 telemetry.
Did they retrieve the fairings?
Looks like they have that trajectory dialed in.I still have a hard time believing just how routine the whole process of launching 60 satellites and reusing the booster and fairing have become. What an age to live in.

What an age to live in.Wait till the fill the shell in what 6 launches? Then they switch to the 70 degree and 97 degree shells. The trajectories, they will be a chang'in.
#SpaceXFleet update:Finn Falgout/JRTI/B1058 has not had an AIS ping. (This is normal- ghost tug I tell ya)Hawk/OCISLY are well on their way going 7 knots towards the Starlink LZ. Fairing scoopers Searcher/Navigator are almost to Morehead City to drop off their haul.
Fairings are being transloaded from GO SEARCHER & GO NAVIGATOR to GO PURSUIT in the Port of Morehead City. Both have tarps-generally a good sign. SEARCHER & NAVIGATOR likely will support #STARLINK 21; PURSUIT to the Cape
Last fairing has been loaded onto GO PURSUIT!
As of 1440-local, GO Pursuit was headed out to sea almost certainly en route to the Cape to drop off @SpaceX #Starlink 20 fairings. GO Searcher & GO Navigator remain in port #spacexfleet #spacex @SpaceXFleet
Go Pursuit is hugging the coastline en route to Port Canaveral with the recovered fairings from the Starlink L20 mission. Pursuit is doing courier duty while Searcher and Navigator head out for the L21 mission in the morning. Y'all confused yet? #SpaceXFleet
Booster spotted on the horizon!
Finn Falgout, Just Read the Instructions and B1058-6 have arrived at Port Canaveral after the Starlink L20 mission.The Space Coast woke up to a launch and spring breakers are being suprised by the arrival of a scorchy booster. Mission overview: https://www.nasaspaceflight.com/2021/03/spacex-launch-starlink-v1-l20/
GO Pursuit will be arriving at Port Canaveral with the fairing from the Starlink V1 L20 mission in about 60 minutes.GO Searcher/Navigator successfully recovered them during the mission and transferred them to Pursuit in North Carolina on Friday.
