Where is this picture located?
The SpaceX building to left isn't adjacent to the landing pad (AFAIK), so booster has been relocated...
Is this just a crane swing away or some distance off?

That building looks like a semi trailer to me.
TL;DR
Keep your posts short if you want them to be read.

I'm guessing it's in the area with the red arrow below. If I squint hard enough, I can imagine I see the stand, with the white trailer just below it. Photo credit: Craig_VG, who snapped it a few days after the OG-2 landing.

correct.  The booster has to be carried by the crane to that location

A plea for those with information about the recovered S1, can you please post to this thread instead:
http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=40770.0

Would be great to keep the lifecycle of this booster in one place instead of across many different mission threads.

Just a suggestion, not trying to upend the established NSF process!!

OK this is an old mission thread but it technically is an update thread... I'll be moving some posts to the discussion thread. :) (unless I botch the move, those of you watching certain posts just now might have been wondering what the heck...)

Edit: moved. PM me if you think I screwed up.
