The flight took off at 1055 local and landed at 1420 local (3.5 hr duration) to collect photovoltaic (PV) cell data. Dean Neeley was the pilot. This was the third and final flight of the PV instrument. He reported the spot remained about centered and within 2.5 degree reticle for most of data run. However, it took higher than expected nose-down pitch attitude/descent rates to keep the sun within the reticle.
