The BN2.1 test tank has been moved to the gate of the build site ahead of today's closure.

The yellow crane at the launch site is also currently moving from Pad B to the landing pad/gate area. (Possibly to receive GSE3? Or to be transported?)

The Super Heavy BN2.1 test tank was rolled to the launch site. Meanwhile, the fourth extension to the Orbital Launch Mount was added, and then removed. GSE Tank 6 Mid Section #1, and Booster Aft Tank Section #5 were spotted.

Unfortunately, that was just the Booster being lifted out of the scaffolding and moved towards the front of the high bay.
