SO 35 Vandenberg site dismantled

With some sadness, the Vandenberg launch crew dismantled the "temporary"
site which has been in service since mid November.  The last two passes
were commanded yesterday afternoon.  Not expected was the complete
reversal of what was previously observed, that is the Eastern pass refused
to respond while the Western pass was outstanding!  The old girl still has
a number of tricks to be determined!

Niki Steenkamp and Rean Bootsma will be catching flights later on today
(Sunday) with a tip of the hat from those of us remaining.
