    De-orbit maneuver was not perfect. We made four jumps in atmosphere. Last jump was critical 80% maximum safe wings load. But G-force was OK for crews.

    Approaching Wideawake international airport. Runway 12R is free and prepared. Landing is approved.

    Preparing for touch down. Decreasing vertical velocity for smooth landing.

    Mission 12 accomplished
