An update from Jpowell on the forum

“Saturday JP Aerospace conducted several tests of the balloon deployment system on the Away 28 vehicle. On the last test we floated the vehicle above the shop to check for stability. This test was a lot of work, however the team had a great time. It always feels good to get something in the air even if it’s just a few feet.

We took a lot of pics and this time more them one came out! (shock, disbelief, amazement)
I’ve posted a bunch of them at the JPA web site:
