Finally managed to get to see a launch. Something I have wanted to do for 30 years or more. Had good weather and everything was fine until the announcement of T-10s but as it turned out the tannoy had a 10s delay so I nearly missed the launch as I was doing a  final check on the focusing on a different launch pad. Ho hum.

Either way, really worth seeing a launch if you can....

Wonderful to hear the sound of the atmosphere being ripped up :)
