Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Today, data was collected over the Yukon Flats Phenomenology site. 28 of 28 planned lines were flown with no aircraft issues. Radar data was successfully collected on all lines but the camera would not function after line three. The display indicated an error message that could not be cleared after multiple resets. We are in touch with our camera experts and have a troubleshooting plan that will be executed tomorrow morning. If the issue cannot be resolved, we will swap the spare camera in. Our original plan was to fly the full Yukon Flats 1 site tomorrow and Tanana1 Sunday, but we are swapping the flights since the camera is critical for Yukon Flats and we want to give it an in-air test. The weather forecast for Yukon Flats is mostly sunny to sunny through Monday.
