Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Completed Wind Profiler flight over the Charlotte NC ground based radar site. Made multiple passes (11) at 14,000' on different headings. A lower cloud deck existed over the site at about 6,000' but the instrument appeared to be able to sufficiently penetrate it. The researchers requested a couple of passes below the lower clouds if able and the Charlotte Approcah controller was able to work us through for two passes at 5,000'. Throughout the flight the instrument and aircraft operated nominally. The researchers are tentatively scheduled for the next flight on Monday Nov 26.
