Ship 28, next in line for flight on IFT-3, was rolled to Pad B and began engine testing. Meanwhile, SpaceX continued scrapping of Pad A, the new additions to the Orbital Tank Farm were tested, and there was a holiday drone show at Isla Blanca Park.

Road closure has been revoked for today, but we get to watch for Booster 10's lift onto the Orbital Launch Mount (OLM), which could be today.

The chopsticks have closed in around B10 ahead of press plate removal and eventual lift. This will be the first lift of a booster off the new style of transport stand. In theory, automated hold-down release instead of manual.

Lift of Booster 10 still has not happened. It is unclear what delays it right now.
