SpaceX has released official photography from the launch of the Arabsat-6A satellite aboard a Falcon Heavy on Thursday, April 11. The photos were shared on the California-based launch provider’s official Flickr page, where they are available for high-res download.
The launch was the first of a Block 5 Falcon Heavy, easily identified by the presence of the black landing legs. The previous version of the SpaceX Falcon booster featured white landing legs, as they did for the maiden launch of the Falcon Heavy in January 2018.
The next launch of the Falcon Heavy is currently scheduled for June and will carry the United States Air Force STP-2 payload. The payload is to be used to verify the Falcon Heavy in order to certify the vehicle for lucrative national security missions.
