Pieces of Launch Tower Section 8 were delivered, and assembled. Parts of the LR 1600/2 "Tankzilla" crane were loaded onto trucks and left the launch site. Work on the orbital tank farm and launch site continued.

So… uhh… these were just driven over to the Propellant Production Site.

They look important.

Hot Gas thrusters were installed on the Super Heavy Booster forward dome sleeve, which was then mated with a booster forward dome. Work on Launch Tower section 8 continued.

Someone on site is saying that they were told a test is happening. Road has been hard closed at the beach end too, but the beach hasn't been cleared. (The person is streaming from the beach on their Twitter right now)

Barrier was just removed per LabPadre Sentinel Cam, and police now leaving. Road is open:

Not the best time to be retroactively announcing road closures! But another is now scheduled for tomorrow.

Starship SN16 is worked on, potentially for its move to a display stand or even a hypersonic flight as stated by Elon. Meanwhile at the Launch Site, the Liebherr LR 11350 is still attached to the Launch Tower.
