As Booster 3 prepares to test its tanks under flight temperatures and pressures, a Cryo Tank Shell was rolled out to the Launch Site. Also a Raptor engine that was delivered to the Launch Site for Booster 3 was returned to the Production Site.

Like the previous cryoshell, it was lifted off of the SPMTs and placed out of the way into the orbital tank farm, between the water tank and GSEC1 (not over either of the inner GSE tanks).

Also, Frankencrane is now upright again after previously laying down for further work.

Per the NSF 24/7 stream
