SpaceX is targeting Sunday, March 14 for launch of 60 Starlink satellites from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The instantaneous window is at 6:01 a.m. EDT, or 10:01 UTC.

The Falcon 9 first stage rocket booster supporting this mission previously supported launch of Crew Dragonís first demonstration mission, RADARSAT Constellation Mission, SXM-7, and five Starlink missions. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9ís first stage on the ďOf Course I Still Love YouĒ droneship, which will be located in the Atlantic Ocean. Falcon 9ís fairing previously flew on the Transporter-1 mission.

Taking that to mean both halves. Is this the first dual reuse of a pair together?

I canít find an example of dual reuse of a pair together from the same first flight.

I canít find an example of dual reuse of a pair together from the same first flight.

Some examples of second flight reuse of both halves:
Starlink v1.0 L1 flew both halves from Arabsat-6A
Starlink v1.0 L5 flew both halves from Starlink v0.9
Starlink v1.0 L6 flew both halves from AMOS-17
Starlink v1.0 L10 flew both halves from Starlink v1.0 L3

Two SpaceX records will be broken if the mission launches on time.

Time between two launches from LC-39A (10d 1h 37m). Previous record: Starlink-13 (V1.0 L12) -> Starlink-14 (V1.0 L13) (12d 00h 56m).

Time between two launches from the same coast (3d 01h 48m). Previous record: Starlink-17 (V1.0 L16) -> Transporter-1 (3d 01h 58m).

GO for launch, GO for age of reflight

Two SpaceX records will be broken if the mission launches on time.

Time between two launches from LC-39A (9d 20h 24m). Previous record: Starlink-13 (V1.0 L12) -> Starlink-14 (V1.0 L13) (12d 00h 56m).

Time between two launches from the same coast (3h 01m 48m). Previous record: Starlink-17 (V1.0 L16) -> Transporter-1 (3d 01h 58m).

my count for LC-39A turnaround is 10 days, 1 hour, and 37 minutes. (3/4 08:24 UTC --> 3/14 10:01 UTC)

"Press kit" capture with OCR.
SpaceX page still bugged on Chrome, but today I found out that it works fine on Microsoft Edge which also has a native tool for capturing the whole page. Neat!
