Stuff That’s Hard to Do (Falcon9 ISI EROS C-3, Vandenberg)

61st Falcon9 of 2022
Israeli hi-res reccy-sat mission from the same space launch complex (SLC-4)
that NRO recce programs GAMBIT & HEXAGON used back in the day*

Nice videos
@T+2m40s (Stg1 boost-back) the Stg1 and Stg2 engines are pointed at each other
so the plume interaction is really interesting

* Yeah, I worked 21 launches from there in the ’70s

¡¡ UPDATE !!

If you’ve ever wondered why I still use the same title for routine successes…
