Comments:ER-2 809 took off at 0200 local and landed at 0622 local (4.4 hr duration). The first portion of the mission was flown over a Mesoscale Convective System over Eastern Tennessee, including several racetracks in coordination with the Citation. Following a successful TRMM underpass at 0509 local, the ER-2 completed one additional line and headed home. The instruments performed without issue – a CRS fault was noted 3 hours into flight, but was remotely reset in time for TRMM overpass. Aircraft returned safely – ready for next flight.
