Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Flight 16-9026 was the ninth science mission from KTCM with AMPR, CPL, eMAS, HIWRAP and AirMSPI-1. Flight took off on time from KTCM at 0806 local and landed in KTCM at 1355 local (5.8 hours). Tim Williams was the pilot. The mission was to survey post-frontal shower along with a deepening low pressure system off-shore. Soon after reaching altitude the ER-2 was diverted to fly coordinated flight with DC-8 for approximately two hours. The remainder of the flight was flying a set of several solar planes. All objectives were met. No inflight failures were noted. AMPR fix performed yesterday appears to have resolved – all channels were solid throughout flight.
