As Starship SN15 prepares for flight, the tank and nosecone sections of SN16 were moved into the High Bay for stacking. SN16 is next in line to fly after SN15.

BTW, if any of the photographers here are able to get a photo of SN17 in the mid bay that would be cool.   :)

Starship SN15 scrubbed its flight attempt due to weather. Its next attempt is scheduled for no earlier than May 5, 2021. Although it didn't fly, SN15 did wiggle its flaps.
