Default FH on Pad 39A! (links)

Hello All,

SpaceX has raised--and lowered--the first Falcon Heavy (FH) rocket at Launch Complex 39A at Cape Canaveral! The exercise was conducted for vehicle/pad hardware fit-checking and strongback testing. Below are links to photographs and videos of the event (plus pictures of its unusual payload being prepared):

I hope this material will be useful (including for scale documentation).
