Purpose of Flight:Check
Comments:The objectives for this range checkout flight were all met. Two issues occurred during the flight. The Link Mod, which is part of the ARC Payload Support System, stopped communicating during the later portion of the flight. During hangar checks after the flight, no cause was found and the system checked out in good condition during many power cycles. Also during the flight, the radar altimeter system on the aircraft failed. After 3 landing attempts were made with the radar altimeters, they were turned off and the aircraft landed using the aircraft navigation system. The radar altimeters were replaced and have passed operational checks.
