|SN11 in the High Bay|
Serial Number 11 is a Starship prototype that was destroyed during its high altitude test flight. SN11 successfully made it to 10km and flipped into a sky dive configuration, also known as the belly flop. During engine relight, engine 2 suffered a hard start in the CH4 turbopump due to fried avionics from a CH4 fire, causing SN11 to RUD.
