Alright. Iím gonna call it quits. Itís been an hour since the last Raptor sighting, and things got pretty quiet around here.

Hereís the list of Raptors we saw rollout to the high bay tonight:

Love you all and thanks for your encouragement and support! ❤️‍🔥🚀🥱

Here's what you've spotted so far (I think). Pink=Spotted, Blue=In high bay, Orange = Was put on last time they installed all the raptors on B4. RB26 and 24 were not installed last time. All engine positions are accurate from the last raptor install. You're amazing, keep it up!

Well, perhaps I should have stayed longer last night, cause the first thing I see this morning are 4 raptors sitting outside! 😱

If they kept up their pace from last night, we could have had about anther 10 Raptors moved out in addition to the 12 we saw last night.

😱😱😱
