Flight took off on time from KTCM at 1305 local and landed in KTCM at 1705 local (7.0 hours). Stu Broce was the pilot. The ER-2 flew a sortie today observing postfrontal convection. The first five hours of the flight included coordinated data runs with DC-8 including overfly of NPOL site in SW and NE directions. Remainder were ER-2 only data runs. All objectives were met. Pilot noted sluggish control during ascent; potentially due to icing conditions. No in-flight instrument failures were noted by aircrew. Two 19 GHz AMPR channels; to be addressed after next flight.
