Some reusability stats for this launch (Starlink Group 6-29):

Booster B1067.15 turnaround time: 39 days 8 hours 45 minutes
(its previous mission was Starlink Group 6-22 on Oct 13, 2023 UTC).

FYI: median turnaround time for Falcon 9 / Heavy boosters is currently 56.05 days *
* – based on the last 30 launches, excluding new first stages.

Launchpad SLC-40 turnaround time: 4 days 2 hours 42 minutes
(the previous launch from this pad was Starlink Group 6-28 on Nov 18, 2023 UTC).

FYI: median turnaround time for SLC-40 is currently 5.63 days *
* – based on the last 30 launches.

The same type of stats for previous SpaceX launches may be found on this spreadsheet online.

It's nice seeing people bring their families out post-feast to watch this hauled into port. Really impressive in person.

275th Falcon 9 orbital launch attempt, if I'm counting right.  One of those didn't make it to orbit.  Another fell a bit short of plan.

A 276th Falcon 9 flew the suborbital crew escape test flight.  A 277th blew up on the launch pad with AMOS 6 during a WDR.

There was once a time when seeing two Falcon 9's vertical at Port Canaveral was an extremely rare thing.

Now it's just Saturday.

Cross-post re: Thanksgiving holiday commercial aviation and Space Coast launches; the wee-hours launch time likely assisted interfering with a minimum of Thanksgiving passengers? ✈️

FAA: Traveling to central Florida airports on commercial flights from the northeast will no longer experience delays or reroutes during a typical space launch.

"Based on risk analyses conducted for every launch and working with the U.S. Space Force and space launch operators, the FAA determined the existing airspace restrictions for most Florida launches were too large and could be safely reduced.

More than 80 percent of the Florida launch trajectories are to the east and south. Sections of airspace to the north that had been traditionally closed for all launches can now remain open during most launches. Within this northern section is the busy overwater route from the northeast to central Florida airports in Orlando, Tampa, St. Petersburg and Sarasota, among others."
