Sorry, made a mistake when introducing new liftoff time. The corrected time
for liftoff at 22:16:01 UTC should be:

Payload3                                               261 X 35880 km
1 70004U 16504A   16237.95695602 0.00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    00
2 70004   5.9994 136.7575 7284410 175.8303  13.4764  2.27174409    07

Spacecraft Separation is scheduled 22:58 UTC.

Apologies for the mistake.

Jon.
