Comments:Science flight for the HU-25 in support of ACTIVATE Campaign #3, conducted cooperatively with the UC-12. Departed Rwy26 to FKN climbing to 9k ft MSL for wind calibration run setup. Conducted four runs (265/230/200/250 KIAS) while transiting from FKN-ECG, all with > 2min stable time (+/- 1 KIAS) and winds out of the northwest (~30 kts). Descended out of 9k ft MSL passing ECG, and worked clear air collection effort from 500 – 5500 ft MSL while transiting out to OXANA. Encountered a scattered layer at ~4200 ft MSL while transiting from OXANA to 3245N/07145W and back, conducting in/out of cloud collection in accordance with standard profile. Continued with clear air profile until reaching the coastline and then proceeded VFR 1000-1500 ft MSL from ECG to KLFI for a full stop landing, with a quick pass through a intercoastal grass-burning smoke plume. Geolocation was within ~25 nmi throughout flight duration and winds at lower altitudes were from the northwest <10 kts. All objectives were achieved and no system discrepancies were noted - pending post-flight data analysis. Pilots: Thorson/Delaney QNCs: Crosbie/Winstead
