Purpose of Flight:Science
Miles Flown:690 miles
Comments:Planned as a UC-12 double flight day; cooperative flight with the HU-25. Planned route: ECG OXANA 3300N07145W OXANA ECG. UC12 takeoff from runway 26 ahead of HU-25. Good ATC departure and climb to FL270. During the climb the aircraft generators still showed signs of significant load sharing fluctuations (problem has been noted on previous flights, was ground checked OK). The system split was about as extreme as been noticed on other flights and remained until the descent when it evened out. ATC offered and we coordinated/accepted a cut across W-72 from well prior of ECG straight to OXANA. Further down the AR8 corridor the researches asked for a different endpoint. An amended clearance for OXANA WILYY OXANA was requested and given. Profile up to WILYY and back to OXANA was nominal. Approaching back toward ECG we requested a offshore cut through W-72 allowing for more over water time and help avoiding over land storms. Proceeded to ATLIC for the descent into Langley. ATC gave vectors for a ILS 26 with a timing turn in order to let NASA524 in first. Normal landing at KLFI with some light to moderate rain approaching from the south, runway 26. 4x dropsondes deployed; OXANA EB, WILYY turn point, 1/2 to OXANA WB, south of ATLIC. Crew was Delaney, Wusk, Shingler. Second flight of day planned for a process study in W-72.

Comments:Planned as second flight of the day on a UC-12 double flight day; cooperative flight with the HU-25. Planned route: KLFI ATLIC OUTES W-72 ATLIC KLFI for a Process study event. Takeoff from runway 08 after HU-25. Good ATC departure and climb to FL280. Aircraft generators functioned nominally on this flight with a nominal balance of load. HU25 led into W-72 searching for a acceptable target for Process study. After identifying and setting up on an initial target, the conditions proved to not be as desired. The aircraft proceeded south until a plan for a switch to statistical survey was implemented. The aircraft traversed between 35N74W to 3630N07250W NE bound, reversed back SW to the southern point, then proceeded back NE about halfway. The aircraft then headed direct to ATLIC due to the need for Wx alternate requirements(additional fuel) on arrival at LFI Proceeded to ATLIC for the descent into Langley. Both aircraft vectored for a ILS 26. Langley temporarily closed due to lightening in the vicinity requiring both aircraft to airborne hold until the field opened. Normal landing at KLFI with some light to moderate rain approaching from the south, runway 26. Crew was Delaney, Wusk, Shingler, and Seaman.
