If I didn't mess up the timezone conversion they could be flying right now?
Good luck one more!

Well that wasn't meant to be read literally ;)

But their flight window opened at 7 am PDT, that was close to an hour ago.

So far twitter comments are positive, but looks like it will be another two hours before the flight?

"Vehicle prep continues, judges are making necessary measurements. Estimated time for attempt now 10am PST"

that's indeed in about an hour or two :)

Heck of a first go though. AA did not get to engine troubles until their second year. At least Xombie's legs did not fall off :-)

Hopefully someone has some good video uploading.
