Comments:Flight #3 for MISTiC Winds. HyTES without scanhead flew piggyback. Dean Neeley was the pilot. Accomplished the entire flight plan. Orbit 1 extended to the west 10 nautical miles to cover clouds of interest. Modified orbit make turns to the north to capture clouds of interest, but second pass clouds of interest had moved to north, so orbit was cut short. Orbit over Vandenberg was clear. This flight completed the MISTiC Winds campaign.
