Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:One flight day. Plan was to fly 15 min legs over land at different altitdues between 2500 and 10,500' to check out the research radar operations. Crew was Kagey, Wusk, Faulkner, Wu. Took off IFR to get out of low clouds over LFI. Cancelled IFR was clear and started radar once past LVL at 2500'. Radar was not working as advertised. Tried several altitudes and completed some turns over Kerr lake to see if they could get a good return over water. No luck so RTB. Ground troubleshooting radar will continue. Meanwhile the researchers are requesting a "non-radar" flight over the NC mountains for tomorrow.
