The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency has announced that it has postponed the second captive firing test of its first stage flight model tank for its Mitsubishi Heavy Industries H-IIB launch vehicle. JAXA says:

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. were scheduled to perform the second captive firing test (CFT) on April 20, 2009 (Japan Standard Time) at the Tanegashima Space Center. However, we would like to announce the postponement of the test as bad weather conditions are forecasted on April 20 and 21.

Currently, we plan to hold the test on April 22.

The final go/no-go decision for the test on the 22nd will be determined by continuously monitoring and examining the weather conditions and other factors.
