Comments: 
This was the final flight of the FIREX-AQ deployment. The aircraft transited from Salina back to Palmdale an sought to detect trace evidence of western wildfires at high altitude. Upon reaching California the aircraft descended to 1000 feet AGL and overflew five wineries in the south of the San Joaquin Valley before repeating a survey of the San Gabriel Mountains foothills that was flown on the transit to Boise on August 17. Two circuits were completed flying a contour altitude at approximately 1000 feet over the land portion and at 500 feet off of the coast of the Los Angeles Basin. The aircraft remains in the FIREX-AQ payload configuration and is standing by for a prescribed burn expected later this Fall.
