The streaming video of the launch is delayed. As I watched your broadcast on my iPhone, I went outside to see it when ignition started and was disappointed to see it already high in the sky and heading downrange. Please let us in Florida know how much to allow for the delay.
Thanks again for broadcasting the launch. The video stream was very clear, just late.
Still irritating that Russian rocket engines are being used to launch USAF payloads. Shame.
