Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:One flight day. Plan was to fly 15 min legs over land at different altitudes between 2500 and 11,500' to check out the research radar operations. Crew was Kagey, Wusk, Faulkner, Wu. Took off VFR from LFI. Started radar once past LVL at 4500'. Radar worked which was a big milestone for the project. Worked several altitudes and completed some turns over Kerr lake to collect radar returns over water. Worked up to 11,500' over the water and over land headed back to LFI. Descended to 2500' on return leg for lower data over land. Researchers are requesting a flight over the NC mountains for tomorrow. If weather cooperates tomorrows flight may be the last research flight of this series. The team will off load the instrument on Friday.
