🚨Ship 28 move alert🚨
Two SPMTs with counterweights are now staged in front of the High Bay ahead of (likely) moving S28 to the Launch Site for its Static Fire campaign!

It looks like the build-up to the third flight of Starship will ramp up soon, with a rollout (assuming Ship 28, but it could be Booster 10) on Sunday.

Remember, both vehicles have been cryo-tested at Masseys already. They could do another at the launch site, but they could also move to Static Fire testing sooner than previous flows.

An effort to roll out Ship 28 is currently underway as two SPMTs move into the High Bay to clear the pathway from Ship 30; then, another pair of (festive) SPMTs will be brought in to move Ship 28.

Action! Ship 30 is moving out of the High Bay, likely to make way to allow Ship 28 to rollout to the pad! We will do live commentary for Ship 28 to the pad.

After Ship 30 moved out of the High Bay, both SPMTs of Ship 28 were brought in; closure starts in less than 4 minutes, but a load of counterweights still needs to be lifted onto the transporters.

Ship 28 should be rolling soon. SpaceX is busy installing Christmas lights to EVERY-THING! 😅

SPMT - gets lights.
Tower - gets lights.
SQD Arm - gets lights.

Even the lights shining on Ship 28 right now have what appear to be a snowflake shape in Christmas style. This roll will be very weird and very funny lol

There is a set of XMas lights hanging on the SPDM's length, decorated trees with lights, A Santa Claus, a Reindeer, and snowflakes lighted via laser projection on the ship.  The Vehicles with lighting are configured with Green Lights.
