22JUL2020 to 24OCT2020 was a net gross of 1,000. That's an escalation of the testing AFAICT. Eventually they want to hit 160 day, so it's a step towards that goal. Nobody else can claim these accomplishments at the moment and I don't expect them to get matched anytime soon.

What were the number of flight ops days in that lot? Don't you think when the FORD reaches 160 cats/traps per day they will let us know? You may find this earlier post on previous page in this thread interesting?
