For our buddy @Draggendrop, who couldn't be here to celebrate this day with us. He would have loved this. (Y)

We'll deal with all of this another time. He wouldn't want us to be sad on a day like this.

OK, can you guys watching this launch live do me a small favour? Crack open a beer for me (if you have them) and raise a cold one for @Draggendrop as the launch goes up?

Well, I'm not exactly drinking a beer ... :shifty: ... I'm on the hard stuff today, and the 'ol lady is plenty P.O.'d about it too. And I don't give a hoot about it either.

 

(Week 3 of Calculus III, and I'm getting a 95% so far. Yeah. I'm getting sloshy. :D)

The plaque was a nice touch too. Good for them.

It's a shame Mr Steven couldn't be there to join them. Recovering the fairing would be the cherry on the cherry on the cake
