Flawless! How beautiful is first stage recovery nowadays. No more slamming 100's of thousands of dollars into the ocean.

I loved the shot as the first stage separated and swung around. The burnback burn ignition was captured by the camera looking out of the second stage.

I didn't look. Did this flight use the new titanium gridfins?

Gee they made that one look easy.

OTT those looked like standard fins to me, the new ones are black. No need for updated fins on that flight, was much gentler on re-entry.
