Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments: Comments: KORUS-AQ transit flight from Anchorage to Osan Air Base. Science request was for a missed approach to Memanbetsu and low level flight to Rikubetsu followed by s spiral climb to cruise altitude and flight over several observation sites off the west coast of Hokkaido. This plan was refused by the Japanese defense ministry but we did accomplish was descent while holding over an area close to Rikubetsu and ATC vectors to the north ILS into Memanbetsu and a missed approach. We accomplished all science objectives by a different name. All of the rest of the flight and landing at Osan AB were uneventful.
