Exciting!  And two thumbs up for the improvements you've made to the log.

But FYI: Small error - you've got the first flight of core 1021 listed as flying for SES-9 (which I think must have been core 1020 - it had a hard landing and was destroyed).  Core 1021 flew NASA CRS-8 and was the first successful barge landing.  I've seen this stated wrongly in news articles elsewhere too so I'm not sure whose error it was originally.

thank you for your kind words and for noticing the core mix-up! I rechecked the core numbers and i think they are now in sync with the best public sources.

Neither of the NSF source articles I originally included (for the static fire or the actual launch) had anything on the scrubbed first launch attempt.  I meant to find an outside source but forgot.  Here's one though:

Isn't this also "the one with the booster than landed on two oceans"? Or "two drone ships", if you prefer.

I believe Bulgariasat should have a Mission Delay in it due to the fairing issue discovered after the static fire.

  C) 2017-07-02, Scrub at T-09sec due an issue with the GNC criteria [131]
  C) 2017-07-03, Scrub at T-09sec due to an issue with the ground computers [131]
  D) 2017-07-04, Mission delay in order to review all rocket and pad systems [133]
  L) 2017-07-05, Successful launch (the one where they took 3 attempts over the July 4th weekend to launch a naked rocket) [131]
