Miles Flown:670 miles
Comments:Science flight for the UC-12 in support of ACTIVATE Campaign #3, conducted solo (independent of the HU-25). Departed Rwy08 and climbed to 27000 ft MSL heading south to southern oceanic corridor. The weather was clear with a broken/overcast layer at approximately 7000 – 8000 ft overland until ~100 nm offshore, then transitions to scattered, and even clear at times, approaching turnaround point (LSIER). Predominant wind from the west at 80 knots. Data was collected at 27000 ft MSL for most of the flight, and a climb to 28000 ft MSL was initiated on return leg from OXANA. Two dropsondes were deployed, one between OXANA-LSIER, and the other midway down track ECG-OXANA. All objectives were achieved and no system discrepancies were noted, pending post-flight data analysis.
