Comments:The first flight of DC-8 OIB 2019 was the instrument checkout flight for the Kansas University radars. FL200 ±60° roll reversals, ±5° pitch reversals at 1500’AGL ATM did not operate on this high-altitude offshore flight. As expected Gravimeter DGPS failed during roll reversals. Instruments passed the check flight.
