    Was on site for the flight and hung around until mid-day Monday when Kurt extracted the booster form the playa. It looks to be flyable despite it was driven about 4 feet into the ground. The playa surface was pretty rough and Kurt has a really interesting story about how the impact point was located with nothing showing above the surface.
