Late Night Testing With The Great Lakes Drone Company

Alien Sightings Were Not A Concern For This Testing Run... Maybe

Sun 'n Fun's first night airshow is Wednesday night, and by Tuesday evening 60 performers didn't have their wings attached. The 60 drones sat on a level patch of ground in the center of Lakeland Linder International Airport, ready to test their show. A crew of four from the Great Lakes Drone Company--Owner and CEO Matthew Quinn, Ashley Munson, Christian Nitz, and Lindsey Nitz--unloaded the small aircraft from the trailer where they lay on the floor, setting them out on the grass instead. The drones connect to Quinn's computer inside the trailer, sending in data about speed, position, satellite connection, and more. The accuracy begins at 3 meters, but counts down to the target of only 0.8 m.

On Tuesday, March 30, SpaceX launched its fourth high-altitude flight test of Starship from Starbase in Texas. Similar to previous high-altitude flight tests, Starship Serial Number 11 (SN11) was powered through ascent by three Raptor engines, each shutting down in sequence prior to the vehicle reaching apogee – approximately 10 km in altitude. SN11 performed a propellant transition to the internal header tanks, which hold landing propellant, before reorienting itself for reentry and a controlled aerodynamic descent.
