Next Spaceflight lists the first stage for Transporter-5 is 1061.8.  First stage landing will be at LZ-1.

An ICEYE filing with the FCC shows a LTDN of 1300 for what I presume is this launch.

It's a rough match with this earlier, different filing.
SAT-LOA-20211217-00198

This filing shows 1:30pm LTDN for the deployment orbit, and the Momentus filing shows 01:00 LTAN.

Because the flight path heads slightly westward after skirting Miami, would that put launch time about 2:30 PM EDT?
(13:00 LTDN + ~0:30 eastward + 1:00 for DST)
What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?

Are there sources for the removal of?:
DISCO
Stork 6, 7
TRS13



On the Endurosat website, at https://endurosat.com/services/shared-satellite-service/#book , there are countdown clocks for Shared Sat 2 and 3, satellites listed as "fully booked."  They are counting down to June 1, the launch date for Transporter-5.  However, the Shared Sat 2 clock is exactly six hours faster than the other clock.

From Momentus FCC filings (which is still not approved)

Quote
SpaceX has recently informed Momentus that the insertion orbit range has been further narrowed to 531
km to 537 km, instead of 500 km to 550 km, as previously stated.1 All customer payloads will be
deployed at the insertion orbit.

Quote
As an additional update, the Guardian-Alpha payload will not be on board VR-3 and, thus, will not be deployed.
...
Each deployment group will be spaced apart by at least 90 minutes, or 1 full orbit. First, the FOSSA Systems deployers will deploy sequentially (with the spacing identified above) a total of four deployment groups, comprised of three separate groups of two FOSSASAT-2E 2P PocketQubes and one group of one FOSSASAT-2E 2P PocketQube and one Canary Hatchling 1P PocketQube. For each FOSSA Systems deployment group, the satellites within the group will have separation springs built in to provide spacing upon deployment. Then, the SelfieSat 2U Cubesat will be deployed alone.

Spaceflight Sherpa-AC1 (Sherpa is 176kg with hosted payloads, 203kg with all passengers included)
   (hosted payload) XONA Alpha (registered by Spaceflight on behalf of XONA, USA)

Possible payloads?:
Xona

Isn't it the same payload ?

Some payloads initially aboard Transporter-5 were transferred to today's Electron Flight 26?
Press kit for There and Back Again
Alba Orbital Cluster [Unicorn-2 satellites, TRSI-2, TRSI-3, MyRadar-1] (?)

Is TRS13 a misprint for TRSI-3?

Can’t find anything about a TRS13, however a lot about TRSI 3. Definitely the same one that was to be on this mission, but swapped. I would say it is a misprint.
"The Starship has landed"

http://www.launchphotography.com/Launch_Viewing_Guide.html states
"The first stage will land back at the Cape about eight minutes after launch".

Momentus’ Vigoride Spacecraft Arrives at Launch Site for First Flight With SpaceX

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Momentus Inc. (NASDAQ: MNTS) (“Momentus” or the “Company”), a U.S. commercial space company that plans to offer transportation and other in-space infrastructure services, today announced that its Vigoride orbital transfer vehicle has arrived at Cape Canaveral, Florida, for its inaugural launch.

The Vigoride spacecraft and customer payloads will now be integrated with SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launch vehicle ahead of the Transporter-5 mission targeted for launch in May. The primary goals of Vigoride’s inaugural mission are to test the spacecraft in space, learn from any issues encountered, and incorporate lessons learned into future vehicles. Momentus will also take customer payloads to orbit and generate a small amount of revenue.

“The arrival of Vigoride at Cape Canaveral, the storied starting point for so many space missions, marks the completion of an extensive ground test and assembly campaign to prepare the vehicle for its first flight,” said Momentus Chief Executive Officer John Rood. “Our team will be conducting close-out work on the vehicle before our hardware is integrated with the launch vehicle. It’s been quite a journey for our team, and we are looking forward to seeing Vigoride in orbit soon.”

Momentus welcomes FOSSA Systems and Orbit NTNU among its customers who will be flown on Vigoride’s first flight. In addition to Vigoride, Momentus plans to use a third-party deployer from a trusted partner organization to aggregate rideshare demand from customers. Momentus customer Bronco Space, at the California State Polytechnic University at Pomona, will be on this third-party deployer, along with four other satellite payloads.

“Access to Low-Earth Orbit is a critical enabler for a thriving and diverse space economy,” said Rood. “We are honored to support our customers as they undertake this critical part of their journeys and contribute to expanding and advancing the utilization of space.”
