Comments:1st Research flight of Campaign 5, 3.5 hours flown; KLFI-ECG-OXANA-LSIER-(3243N7138W)-LSIER-OXANA-ECG-KLFI. Taxi out with HU-25, held for landing traffic after HU25 departed. ATC held us at 4000' and runway heading longer than normal after departure. Forward FOD door only with assist by researcher. Direct ECG and up to FL240. ATC longer than normal hold at FL240 by Giant Killer, until well out over the ocean. Relay ATC comms for HU25 (they ended up going Due Regard). Continued climb to FL280 and proceeded with flight plan. Coordinated a 5 min extension past LSIER to lat/long. HF comm required beyond LSIER. Dropsondes dropped as planned along route. On return maintained FL280 until just short of ECG. Performed uneventful RTB and ILS approach for KLFI runway 26. All aircraft systems performed nominally. Aircraft position coordination acceptable throughout flight, with B200 behind at TO, passing HU eastbound with strong tailwind, then being passed by HU westbound due to headwinds. Aircraft ready for next research flight planned on 12/1/2021. Crew was Coldsnow, Wusk, and Harper.
