The Boeing Store have just released again the original full size 3.5" wide by 5.1875" high Starliner Flight Crew patch with Fincke, Ferguson, and Mann on it. With the original SKU number 580085020013.

The patch they show on their website is not the new revised three crew named version with Wilmore replacing Ferguson on it. Is this an error or is it deliberate to sell off the remaining stocks of what now is an obsolete original three crew names manned Flight Test patch?

I can confirm the patch now for sale is the Fincke, Ferguson and Mann version.

The patch was designed after Mike Fincke replaced Eric Boe, so no version exists for the original crew. To my knowledge, Boeing only produced a small number of patches after Butch Wilmore replaced Chris Ferguson and they were only of the flight version (no NASA or Boeing logos at the bottom of the patch).

Still to be seen is if Wilmore and Suni Williams will wear the same design (with the appropriate names changed) or if a new patch will be introduced.

The Crew Flight Test patch shown above have now sold out from the Boeing internet store. They may well still be some available from a few of their U.S. stores?

NASA astronauts debut new patch design for Boeing Starliner crew flight test

The first astronauts set to fly on Boeing's CST-100 Starliner spacecraft debuted a new look for their mission patch during a spacesuit fit check.

Crew Flight Test (CFT) commander Barry "Butch" Wilmore and pilot Suni Williams sported the new insignia during a validation test at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The two NASA astronauts, together with their backup Mike Fincke, suited up and tried out the Starliner's pressurized crew module to ensure a good seat fit, suit functionality, audio systems, cabin temperature and day of launch operations.

Per Boeing, the new CFT mission patch is still a mockup and may undergo further design changes. As more is learned, it will be posted here.

Never has a mission (projected only!) had more patches. Ridiculous!

I don't think they have reached the STS-41E/F/51E/D level yet.

Unless I am overlooking something, I believe the Starliner CFT has had only two patch designs, with the first going through one crew name change (from the original Fincke, Ferguson and Mann to Fincke, Wilmore and Mann).

I like this design a lot more than the original one. That one looked like it was designed in a corporate boardroom, with too many elements crammed into it.

Yes, I also think this one is much better.
