Comments:This was the fifth and final ACCESS 2013 test fuel exhaust emissions sampling flight with LaRC HU-25C. The previous flight of the day convinced the test team that all subassemblies of the fuel system were functioning as designed and that anytime center aux tank boost pumps are operated excess fuel from center aux tank enters tank #3. Prior to this flight tank #3 fuel was purged and redistributed to tanks #1 and 4 and tank 3 was reserviced with pedigree JP-8. All baseline JP-8 emissions data was acquired inflight prior to any operation of the center aux boost pumps or crossfeed system. This concludes ACCESS 2013.
