Comments: 
Flight 16-9025 was the eighth science mission from KTCM with AMPR, CPL, eMAS, HIWRAP and EXRAD. Flight took off on time from KTCM at 1026 local and landed in KTCM at 1630 local (5.1 hours). Stu Broce was the pilot. The mission was ER-2 only to survey a significant Atmospheric River (AR) event which brought heavy rainfall to the area. The mission included two rather long racetracks, the first oriented NE to SW and the second basically South to North. The mission included RADEX as well as EXRAD science objectives. To accomplish EXRAD requirements, HIWRAP required special configuration (performed day prior). All objectives were met. Some short duration inflight failures of EXRAD were noted and cleared by resets
