Comments: 
The mission for Flight 16-9035 was to fly over the methane leak in Porter Ranch, CA. the pilot flew the three lines as planned, then repeated them for a total of six lines. Weather was clear within a 10km radius of the methane leak (target) below 31,000’ altitude. Outside the radius there were low and mid-level clouds below 28,000’. The beginning of the AVIRIS collection on some lines (before the start point) will be washed because of autopilot induced bank angles. Ground speed was roughly 125 Kts on each line. Winds were 50 kts from NW at altitude. On the flight log, the top time entry in the ATA block pertains to the first run, and the second entry (UTC time) is from the second run of each line. AVIRIS performed as expected. The pilot was Dean Neeley.
