Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Research flight from Bermuda with HSRL 1.1 and RSP on the UC-12 for CALIPSO cal/val. Crew was Slover, Blankenship,and Hare. The objective to underfly Calipso south-to-north at 0611Z was partially met. Clouds and thunderstorms were present in the middle of the track. The best weather existed at the beginning and end. About 5-min prior to satellite overpass, we had to deviate 15 nm right of course and returned to course after the mid point. During the times on the line, the moonlight allowed us to recognize there were visible clouds below, and sometimes above. We were on track at 0527Z at 30 06N/061 57W at the abeam the mid-point at 0610Z and at the end point at 0645Z at 34 50N/060 41W. Pilot note: Foreflight gave every indication that it filed the flight plan, only to send a message 45 min later (at engine start), that it received no acknowledgement. We’ll use Flightplan.com for future missions to avoid delays like we had tonight. New York Center was kind enough to file via radio while on the ramp.
