Sunrise was pretty cool this morning with a little aerial spraying over the Starbase launch site. Gotta get these mosquitoes under control! 🤩🚀

A plane flew low around Starbase spraying pesticide for mosquito control. A booster aft dome was flipped and assembly continued on the 9th Launch Tower section. Meanwhile, GSE Tank 6 Rolled in the High Bay.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION.

Sources close to SpaceX have indicated that Elon ordered several hundred Hawthorne and Florida employees to temporarily relocate to Starbase in an effort to get Booster 4 and Ship 20 completed on the orbital platform by August 5. In addition, they also seek to have enough capacity in the GSEs (suborbital and orbital combined) for the Booster 4 and Ship 20 tests. The activity of Booster 3 was stopped and will stay that way.
Employees must fly or drive to StarBase, although the selection criteria employed or specific business requirements for the surge are unknown. Expect lodging and hospitality in the greater Brownsville area to be nearing maximum capacity, so if you're planning a trip from out of the area, plan accordingly.
All of this also coincides with the fact that for the past two weeks Elon Musk's private jet has been seen flying every day from Florida to Starbase to bring employees.
It was also recently known that SpaceX reserved on July 9, 5 new aircraft registration numbers (N310SX, N502SX, N812SX, 840SX, N928SX) which are not yet known for what type of aircraft will be used. Among the hypotheses are that it will be for more planes to transport workers or also for helicopters that will be used for the platforms in the sea from where the Starship will be launched in the future.

If you want some evening Starbase action, Booster 4 is about to add an aft section. Stacking operation in the High Bay expected shortly.

Looks like they just lifted the section that will be stacked (pretty sure Aft Section 5) into the HIgh Bay.
