BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Days after a SpaceX mishap sent smoke up into the air along Florida’s Space Coast, another commercial partner of NASA was working on plans to launch astronauts from U.S. soil again.

Boeing is still months away from its first uncrewed test flight to the International Space Station, but astronaut rescue training is underway should the need ever arise.

Channel 9’s Melonie Holt was at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Army Wharf on Tuesday to watch U.S. Air Force pararescue teams practiced reaching a capsule, stabilizing it and removing its crew members.

The rescue teams used a training capsule of the Boeing CST-100 Starliner, which the company is developing to ferry astronauts to the ISS as part of NASA’s commercial crew program.
