Falcon 9 Launch out of Omelek

Last year I had an opportunity to evaluate Falcon 9 performance from several different launch sites. Here is a graph of my results.

The three launch sites considered are Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS), Vandenberg Air Force Base (VAFB), and Omelek Island, which is where the Falcon 1 launch site is located in the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands.
