Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:ATom-4 science flight RF02. Successfully completed 4 planned vertical profile maneuvers over the Pacific prior to crossing over Alaska. Could not do planned MMS maneuver at 36kft due to ATC rerouting us around restricted areas for Red Flag. Accomplished a successful vertical profile maneuver over the Arctic Ocean as planned. Completed a low approach over Barrow airfield (PABR) followed by 5 minutes of level flight at 1000 ft AGL. Climbed to 39kft to conduct the pitch and yaw MMS maneuvers prior to descent and landing at Anchorage International Airport (PANC). Science instruments and the aircraft all did well.
