Comments:ATom-4 science flight RF05 from Nadi, Fiji to Christchurch, New Zealand. One hour delay due to Air Data Computer not starting up well. The unit reset successfully and after a leak check was determined serviceable. Successfully completed six vertical profile maneuvers (VPMs) over the Pacific Ocean enroute to New Zealand. Also, flew a low approach near the Lauder TCCON site in Southern New Zealand. Science instruments and the aircraft all did well.
