Will there be a Static Fire for Starlink 4-6?

My >guesses<

Yes, if it's 1049.11, a use before its deduced, final, expendable flight in the coming months.

Yes, if it's 1052.3, following its refurbishment from Falcon Heavy side booster to single stick.

No, if it's 1060.10, 1061.6, or 1067.4.

Counting out 1069.2 for now.

Edit: correction

2nd Edit: It's 1060.10, with no Static Fire before launch.

It can't be 1049.12 since this booster has not yet made his 11th flight.

From SFN, January 15, Cape Canaveral’s busy January to continue with another Starlink launch

Quote
There’s a backup instantaneous launch opportunity [January 18] at 9:24 p.m. EST (0224 GMT).

Reason for dog-legged southeast trajectory: prevailing North Atlantic winter weather and sea state.
Quote
...but the company has said it intends to use the southeast launch trajectories in winter months to improve the chances of good offshore conditions for landing of the Falcon 9’s first stage booster.

For this mission, like the last Starlink launch, SpaceX’s drone ship will be parked north of the Abacos Islands in the Bahamas. For launches to the northeast, the landing platform is positioned east of Charleston, South Carolina, a region that sees rougher seas and higher winds in the winter.

To those who deduced this: Congratulations! 🎊
