There could be two more SpaceX Starship test flights in May. SN16 could fly and SN15 could be flown again.
Elon Musk tweeted that SN15 might refly soon.
SN11 was flown about 22 days after SN10. SN15 was flown 27 days after SN11.
This cadence means that both SN16 and SN15 could have flights in May.
Above is the production status of Starships and super heavy boosters from Brendan Lewis.
There is also interesting construction of the new integration tower to stack a Starship on top of super-heavy booster.
There are various renderings of the launch tower from Blender 3D Eccentric and Lunar Caveman.
SN15 – good flight and landing
SN20 (planned orbital attempt with BN3 in July)
BN3 (planned first orbital attempt)
Felix at What About It? reviews the Starship plans.
Might try to refly SN15 soon

Owe, incredible detail! I noticed these holes (for guide rails IMO) are only on the 3 columns closest to the pad. Something to consider in your next render 🚀👍 pic.twitter.com/ssBKBNiQMv
