What makes you think it's B1048 and not B1047?

It is, and has been in the past.

None of the comment there confirm it is 1048...
How do you get to your bold statement?!

As far as we currently know it still is 1047.
No reports about a new core leaving Hawthorne (they almost always get spotted there). Also no reports of 1047 leaving McGregor, or it arriving anywhere!
And with the now much smaller CoreNr it is almost impossible to determine which core is actually on the test stand, unless some really good photographer can make a serious close-up photo of the part where the grid fins will go.

On the Facebook group there are some members which live in viewing range of the McGregor facilities. They some times post photo's of a test fire happening or a core being on the test stand, but they never mention (because they do not know) which core number it might be.

If only one of them would be able to use some zoom lens to get a photo of the CoreNr...

B1047 just arrived at the cape, so this HAS to be B1048.

(And btw I'm sorry if I'm getting people angry, I never meant for any anger to come out of it).
