The first identifiable part of Ship 21 (the Thrust Dome) was spotted in July 2021. Over the months of August and September more and more parts were spotted, with BocaChicaGal (Mary) spotting the nose cone on September 21 and RGV Aerial Photography spotting the forward flaps on 23 September following a fly over. By October 29 work on the nosecone and barrel section had advanced to the point that the TPS tiles significantly covered both and were outside of the tent.
December 17 saw the mid section of Ship 21 rolled out of the Mid Bay, before Ship 21 was mounted on a transporter on December 22.
