B10 getting the attention this morning, as the HotStageRing is lifted up inside MegaBay. #WenRollout @LabPadre #SentinelCam
She's out! Booster 10 has left MB1. Looks very much as if she'll be heading to the Rocket Garden, since there has been no road closure notice posted for Hwy4.@LabPadre #R1

New in the Ring Yard: A test barrel with what appears to be pins arranged for much smaller TPS tiles. Current theory is that these might be placed over the ship section seams instead of using glued-on tiles.@CosmicalChief @Ringwatchers
Primary Date: Possible Road Closure for December 08, 2023 from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Alternative Date: Possible Road Closure for December 11, 2023 from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Booster 12, which has long been lurking in the front left corner of Mega Bay, has now been moved to the new stand in the back left corner, previously occupied by B10.📸 @CosmicalChief
B13's aft section has been moved into MB1.@LabPadre #R1
Future Starship Boosters.While a human-for-scale works on Booster 11 on the right, Booster 13's LOX tank was completed and stacked on the Left turntable in Mega Bay 1.2024 promises to be very exciting for Starship!nsf.live/starbase
Lots of external stringers have been added to the bottom of Ship 26's Payload Bay section, now that's a weird one.📸 from @LabPadre

Booster 12 has been lifted onto the thrust simulator stand in Mega Bay 1 ahead of moving to Massey's. In the meantime the 2pt Ship lifting jig has been spotted inside Mega Bay 2, so it looks like we might see Ship 29 move there soon!📷: @LabPadre
