Comments:This flight focused on two planned grass management fires and then on targets of opportunity. The aircraft departed Salina and headed to the Hickory Ridge arranged fire south of Lincoln, Nebraska. A high transect across the fire at 15,000 feet was made followed by a spiral descent to 7,000 feet for remote sensing. The aircraft descended to 1000 feet and nine passes for in situ sampling both along wind and across wind to characterize combustion products and trajectories were made. The aircraft proceeded to Tall Grass Prairie, Kansas where one high pass and eight low passes were conducted. With the remaining time two targets near Ft. Riley, Kansas and two targets in Oklahoma were sampled.
