Comments: 
This was the first flight with the WDTS payload. Conducted a science instrument check out. There was a delay for takeoff due to INMARSAT satellite connections. Take off was 1157 local. Instruments had a few anomalies. HyTES will need to check instrument connections. AVIRIS, MASTER, and PICARD need to check data post flight. Initial data checked good. Weather had a lot of high clouds, Salton Sea was mostly clear with bands of Cirrus. San Diego coast was mostly clear. Very smoky from Antelope Valley to the North. Landed 1502. Tim Williams was the pilot.
