Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Good Flight. This leg was completed between Anchorage, AK and Kona, HI. It included a low-approach at Cold Bay, AK followed by 4 vertical profile maneuvers. The desired flight path was a direct route from Cold Bay to Kona. However, military activity North of Kona required us to fly a more Easterly track. Towards the end of our flight, we had to shut down an air conditioning pack. At that point, we decided to RTB and did not complete the planned MMS maneuver. The science instruments all worked well on the flight. The aircraft landed with one failed A/C Pack which is a downing item. MX will troubleshoot. We do have a spare that will hopefully put the aircraft back in flightworthy condition.
