Purpose of Flight:Check
Comments:The purpose of this flight was to checkout the HS3 science instruments on TN872. Shortly after takeoff the aircraft had a landing gear fault associated with the hike/dehike mechanism. The crew flew the aircraft within the range to burn off fuel per the emergency procedure. Another aircraft flew in proximity and took photos which verified the gear was in a safe position. Landing was uneventful and the gear was fixed the following day.
