STARLINER IS AT THE PAD
The United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket is perched atop Cape Canaveral’s Space Launch Complex-41 for Thursday’s launch of Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner on the second Orbital Flight Test (OFT-2) in support of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.
Teams with NASA, Boeing and United Launch Alliance held a launch readiness review yesterday, (May 17), for Orbital Flight Test-2, which will send an uncrewed Starliner on a shakeout cruise to the orbiting lab.
