Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Mission Objectives were to fly coincidental flight paths with the B-200 during Discover AQ. Mission was flown at FL350 with no weather at altitude. Low altitude clouds were present between 4 and 10 thousand feet with some cumulous clouds reaching 20-35 thousand feet. These clouds covered about 50% of the flight path view, which is less than optimal, but worth the look given a long forecast of thunderstorms in the week ahead. Flight lines flown as planned with positive overflights of all P-3 spirals, though some were covered in clouds. Two complete circuits were flown. Instrument performed well with a second slit pattern used. All objectives were met per the operator’s flight report.
