The second flight would have launched MEASAT-3A, a Malaysian communications satellite, but the spacecraft was damaged by a crane while Land Launch was preparing it for a planned 21 August 2008 launch.
A second launch was completed on February 26, 2009 when Land Launch successfully launched the Telstar 11N mission.
Land Launch missions differ from Sea Launch missions in that the modernised Zenit-3SLB is used, as opposed to the Zenit-3SL, a smaller and hence lighter payload fairing is used, and the rocket inserts the payload directly into a geosynchronous orbit, rather than leaving it in a geosynchronous transfer orbit.
