With the vehicle safed, workers are preparing to place Starship SN5 on the Roll Lift. SN5 is currently sat proudly on the Landing Pad following her successful 150 meter hop.

As the Super Heavy High Bay moved into Level 3 assembly at SpaceX Boca Chica, the Starship SN7.1 Test Tank (made from 304L Steel) is waiting for aft dome/skirt mate.
