New Falcon 9 booster is being lifted and installed at SpaceX's McGregor Development Facility in Texas. The booster serial number may be B1083 given the recent boosters that have passed by the facility.

Watch its test campaign: nsf.live/mcgregor

Falcon 9 booster B1083 has performed a static fire test at SpaceX's McGgregor Development Facility in Texas. This is usually the last major test before sending a Falcon booster to the launch site to begin its flight history.

Falcon Heavy center core B1087 is now vertical at its test stand at SpaceX's McGregor Development Facility in Texas. Here it will undergo qualification testing ahead of its support of the launch of NASA's GOES-U satellite no earlier than late April.

B1085 will be a Falcon 9 single stick?

(New? or maybe an old) booster in the hanger at 39A as seen during B1060 rollout for IM-1.

Booster appears soot-less.  It could be B1083-1, launching Crew-8 from LC-39A.
