872-0113
Payload Configuration: 
HS3 - TN872 2013 configuration
Nav Data Collected: 
No
Total Flight Time: 
25.1 hours
Comments: 
TN872 landed at WFF at 0946 EDT after a 25.1 mission over the Atlantic to investigate the remnants of Erin and a Saharan dust layer. Also, AVPS was able to deploy 15 sondes and demonstrate that their instrument is functioning properly. They were able to collect data all the way down to the ocean surface. The instruments and aircraft operated nominally, except for the EIP #2 or TRU #2 that malfunctioned part way into the flight. The aircraft will be fueled today and weighed. Then the ops team will begin replacement of the engine nozzles and troubleshooting on the payload power issue.
