Comments:The objective was to perform a HAP science flight targeting the Central Valley of CA. 806 took off at 1050L and landed at 1521 for a 3.5 hour mission. Soon after take-off, a SPEX reset was done. A successful underpass of MISR was performed (within 10 secs of plan!) at TGT1 (Fresno). The aircraft experienced issues with the INS, but Coach was able hand fly the aircraft to within 0.1 mi of targets. For the flight portion over the Pacific Ocean, a partial marine layer existed, but was described as 80% clear.
