Ms. Tree has diverted away from her expected path towards the LZ and will be arriving at the Port of Morehead City shortly. JRTI and the booster recovery team are still at the LZ. I'm not sure about the current location of Ms. Chief.
The Atlantic can be a mean mistress during the tropical season. This is a very active one at that. A check of the @NOAA bouy network shows rough conditions at the closest bouy to the LZ. Wave intervals have slowed but is it enough to prep JRTI for landing? #SpaceXFleet #Starlink
Ms. Tree has just arrived at the Port of Morehead City, North Carolina. I can confirm that she arrived alone - Ms. Chief is still at the landing zone. Webcam photo via the Duke Marine Lab

Is this the first time a fairing has been reused for a third launch? Also, is this the first time where one fairing half is reflown and the other is new?
Celestrak shows a deployment orbit of around 260x280km, with separation an hour after launch. Not the same as the last mission.
A Falcon 9 rocket is being lifted upright at launch complex 39A in readiness for launch later today with 60 Starlink broadband internet satellites: spaceflightnow.com/2020/09/17/fal…
Ready for flight? B1058.3 will be lifting off LC-39A at 2:19 P.M. EST this afternoon, carrying #SpaceX's next batch of #Starlink satellites.
