Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:After refuel and rebrief at KRDU, sortie was launched to collect over the Parker tract (vicinity of Plymouth NC). Collected two sun lines and 8 research flightlines over test area. Intermittent high cirrus (reported scattered at FL250) over the test area but no visible shadows on the ground. One additional research flight line was collected over the Great Dismal Swamp during the return to Newport News Williamsburg airport (due to runway closure at Langley AFB).
