Flight Segments: 
From:PMDTo:PMD
Start:08/08/13 Finish:08/08/13
Flight Time:7.2 hours
Log Number:132301PI:Kent Shiffer
Funding Source:Hal Maring - NASA - SMD - ESD Radiation Science Program
Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:This coordinated ER-2/DC-8 science flight included the transit from PMD to EFD. Take off time was delayed 38 minutes due to Hydrazine Alarm delaying ER-2 pre-flight activities. eMAS was known non-operational prior to the mission. RSP acquired no data during the flight. The NASDAT box flown on SEAC4RS Flt #2 was returned to the airplane and Iridium communications were good on 3 of 4 working modems. Inmarsat is still in troubleshooting mode. CPL downlink through Iridium was good the entire flight. In general, a very good flight with significant science objectives achieved.
