First time Ive ever seen a Zenit land launch :)

(It was a Zenit that blew up on SeaLaunch in 2007 and scattered poor old NSS8 over a large part of the Pacific - saw that one live!)

Congratulations to them so far on a successful launch. It would be interesting to see it from a plane 35,000ft in the sky.

Sadly 65E is down behind the hill opposite, but great to see Amos 4 fly.

The satellite will be positioned in geostationary orbit 22,300 miles over the equator at 65 degrees east longitude, but Amos 4 will initially operate from 67.25 degrees east longitude for in-orbit testing.
