The delayed date was in error, posted by the SpaceX webcast people.

 

CRS-20 launched successfully. 

 

Remember the missed booster landing for StarLink 4? The winds didn't match the model, so the booster did a water landing rather than risk the droneship.

 

Fixed for this launch, the wind envelope was expanded, and the booster made a perfect landing in higher than usual winds - #50 for Falcon 9.
