Funding Source:Mathew Schwaller - NASA - SMD - ESD GPM Program Manager
Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Our objective was to catch a frontal passage over the study site. However, weather progressed faster than forecasted and the ER-2 arrived after the peak of the event. The ER-2 did a very productive North-South racetrack through the trailing edge of the storm, and an East-West racetrack covering the width of the storm as it tracked East from Asheville. A series of racetracks and bowties centered around the NPOL radar near Asheville was completed finishing off a very successful flight. All instruments functioned and the aircraft returned in good shape.
