Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Today's flight took off at 1300 local (delayed 2 hours to await weather) and landed at 1718 local (4.3 hr duration). The flight sampled scattered diurnal convection over Pigeon area in North Carolina in conjunction with GPM overpass at 1447 local. The ER-2 flew several racetracks in coordination with the UND Citation. At approximately 1350 minutes the pilot observed COSMIR stopped rotating – it was reset and appeared to operate normally for remainder of flight (post fight data analysis pending). Also, one of LIP field mills malfunctioned in flight at approximately 1400 local and failed to function after reset – it will be troubleshot during tomorrow's no-fly day. The aircraft returned safely and with no squawks.
