No
Total Flight Time: 
7.6 hours
Flight Segments: 
From:BGSFTo:BGSF
Start:04/28/12 10:50 Z Finish:04/28/12 18:26 Z
Flight Time:7.6 hours
Log Number:12P006PI:Michael Studinger
Funding Source:Bruce Tagg - NASA - SMD - ESD Airborne Science Program
Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Today we flew the infamous Southeast Glacier 01 mission, and as expected, experienced a bit of moderate turbulence. All IceBridge remote sensing science instruments reported good data collection even in the rough conditions, with only brief laser interruptions due to the turbulence. The P3 flight crew performed exceptionally well today keeping the aircraft and personnel safe and comfortable. They took care of a few sick team members very well, and we were able to collect great data today. The P3 showed off her mightyness today.
