Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:First CPEX-AW Science mission. Primary objective was observation of Saharan Air Layer (SAL) dust in conjunction with with Aeolus underpass. Overall good science flight. Aircraft returned with no write-ups. DAWN had some issues with temperatures early in flight. APR-3 had power outlet issue which was resolved in flight. HAMSR and HALO had great flights. Dropsondes had some issues with losing signal on the dropsondes. Decreased speed seemed to help at times. 265 knots seemed to be the preferred speed for drops.
