Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Today's IPHEX flight took off at 1218 local after a slight delay troubleshooting HIWRAP and landed at 1948 local (7.5 hour duration). For the first portion of the mission, the ER-2 flew both solo and in coordination with the Citation to sample orographic/diurnal convection over ground stations in the Pigeon area (Asheville, NC area). For the latter portion of the mission the ER-2 flew over several areas of more organized convection west of the Pigeon (central NC). All instruments operated well; there was unusually low temperature warning noted in the right wing super pod and some instrument fail lights on descent. The aircraft returned safely with no squawks reported.
