Another landing leg removed.  It appears that this might the 4th one to come off.

Crews are busy disconnecting the landing legs of the Falcon Booster.

From the images it looks like the post-landing fire damage is superficial at best.
Do you mean “at worst”?

There seems to be a problem in the catalog with TLEs for Koreasat-5A :
0 KOREASAT-5A
1 42984U 17066A   17316.50085447 -.00000338  00000-0  00000+0 0  9992
2 42984   0.0484 111.3195 0013167 200.1041  35.8653  0.99855166   157

while the Satellite Situation Report, as quoted in the previous post, correctly allocates 2017-067A to Koreasat-5A and  2017-066A to USA-279
