Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:MABEL-AK science flight to the North Pole. Mostly clear skies over the Arctic Ocean. The aircraft returned in good shape. EMI continues to effect the auto-pilot yaw channel so the yaw channel is turned off during science lines. CPL stopped working early in the flight. MABEL had three N2 Fault indications, but worked nominally for the majority of the flight. ACATS worked nominally throughout the flight.
