"Starliner" crew expresses confidence

After several failed attempts, the Boeing “Starliner” finally got off the ground. The astronaut’s 1 week mission at the ISS, has now extended into 5 weeks. They are now expecting to be stuck in the station through the end of July, because the Boeing Starliner is not fit to fly.

So…when are they going to send a Dragon up to pick up the crew, and jettison the Boeing piece of poo?

The Lockheed Starliner was the last of the piston airliners.
Within a few years it was eclipsed by longer range Boeing 707s & a few years after that the longer range DC 8s.

I remember Pops took my brother & I to the airport to view the take off & landings of passenger aircraft in 1960. Good times!
