First double catch for SpaceX Fleet

Port Canaveral, FL – This morning at 0430 EDT the two SpaceX faring catchers, GO Ms. Tree and GO Ms. Chief returned. They recently made their first ever double catch of the ANASIS-II mission’s fairing halves, on July 20, 2020.

Lately the ships have been fishing the fairings out of the water. But on July 20th, Poseidon had different plans for them. As they both made a legendary mark in history on dual fairing half recovery.

GO Ms. Tree

GO Ms. Tree was first to arrive. Strapped down on her stern , a fairing half. She did a 180 turn and reversed to berth.
