Elon Musk indicates that the Falcon Heavy central core booster’s engines could be recovered and reused pending inspection.
The third Falcon Heavy Flight will launch the US Air Force STP-2 mission no earlier than late June. The current estimate is for a June 22 launch. The two side boosters from this second launch will be reused for the third launch.
Engines seem ok, pending inspection

@elonmusk can the octagrabber be used with the FH center core or is this just a rumor? If it can’t be used with the center core, are there plans to make changes so the octagrabber can be used?
