Purpose of Flight:Science
Miles Flown:2580 miles
Comments:This flight concentrated on agriculture crop burn observations and forecasts. Burns in the lower Mississippi Valley are expected to increase in the later part of the season and so the flight went searching for burning in southern Oklahoma and northern Texas wih little success. Only two passes were conducted over a wildfire near Paducah, Texas were made before the flight went searching for field burns west of Shreveport, LA where four passes over a woodfire occurred. 22 passes though smoke plumes were made through seven different field burns over Louisiana and Missippi near the Arkansas border.
