    For some reason when I click on the link it doesn't work, but if I copy and paste into my browser it does work, so you might need to do the same.

    Apologies - I pasted the wrong NOTAM into the previous version of this 
    message......
    
    Hot off the press from SpaceX and NASA, but a little different from 
    NASA's figures yesterday.
    
    May 31 (all UTC):
    
    08:05 - undocking using the RMS (approx)
    09:35 - release from RMS (approx)
    
    3x engine firings to separate from ISS
    
    14:51 - retro-fire
    15:44 - splashdown (about 900 km, announced as 490 nautical miles, SW of 
    Los Angeles, my estimate based on the NOTAM area.... near 26 north, 
    120.5 west)
    
    NOTAM:
    
    05/109 (A2263/12) - AIRSPACE DCC SPACE X DRAGON REENTRY STATIONARY 
    RESERVATION WITHIN AN AREA BNDD BY 2445N/12000W 2518N/12048W
