That's a big splat.

Apparently the IFT-4 booster landed dead on target at 0 velocity. The ship was about 6 km off target - which is why you don't want to be hanging around the expected target area watching at this point :)

I was curious about how the other flaps looked after seeing the one burning up. Wonder if they all had the same issue.

We have video of the booster landing. So easy to forget how big this thing is, it's basically a skyscraper flying around. 

Apologies for the Xitter link, they didn't post it to YouTube (yet).

That transonic shockwave is MASSIVE surprise

I wonder if that's why they had some Raptor destruction on the landing burn re-light?

Not a SpaceX launch, but an unintentional SpaceX clone launch.  Didn't go so well:

My phone keeps dinging with updates as tonight’s Türksat 6A launch gets rescheduled and rescheduled. Sunset launch, maybe?
