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

Dang! Just discovered that Brotox® already exists.
Still a good lame pun, and I hate to delete 15min of finger-numbing work.
