Teslarati's Eric Ralph is reporting SpaceX has 6 tapered and 7 cylinder sections in the flow, totalling about 32.5m (~105 ft). This would be about 60% of a Starship hull.

That channel is just looping last weeks FH launch.  Next FH flight won't be until June (earliest).

Lol, that's not even lasts weeks launch. It is last years demo Starman mission. Look at the fss and the white landing legs.

The thumbnail is last years FH ... but if you hit play they are looping the one from last week.  Right now they just landed the center core on the drone ship.  I bet a million bucks it is going to tip over...  :)
