Vehicles on pads A and B at the same time[edit]

Can both 17A and 17B be occupied by Delta II vehicles at the same time? GPS 2R-21 (M8) is scheduled for launch from 17A on Aug. 21 and the STSS demo flight is scheduled for launch from 17B on Aug. 17. How does that work? (sdsds - talk) 04:02, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

I would imagine it is possible, judging from the prior flight rates. I think the only thing would be the need for the MSS to not be retracted from the vehicle not being launched. -MBK004 04:37, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
