ATom 07/18/16 Mission Daily Schedule

ATom Plan of the Day

A/C access for Tuesday (7/19) will be approx. 0700 to TBD

We originally were planning for a 1000 takeoff but due to pilot availability the morning is no longer an option. We are going to attempt and afternoon flight, time TBD after confirmations in the a.m. 

Short summary story for flight today is the "hum" was still present, though it was not as prominent and had a few different characteristics which led to the removal of the SAGA chimney inlets and a blank off plate installed.
