Comments: 
ER-2 BCDU swapped out before flight – takeoff delayed ~30 minutes. Flew over Railroad Valley in Nevada again – this time, we also flew full circle at ~10 degrees bank angle. Then flew past Lake Tahoe, and over Sacramento and San Francisco. Headed west (and slightly north) to do a short leg over the ocean – cloudy from the coast halfway out and then clear the rest of the way. Then headed back and flew over Monterey, the smoke from the Big Sur fire, as well as the Bakersfield AERONET site on the return to Palmdale.
