Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Science flight #5 started with the Seoul Stereoroute (missed approach to Seoul Air Base and spiral climb in R-17 (Taehue Forest) and then proceeded south off the coast of the peninsula to the Jeju Island waters. The plan was to sample air from west of Jeju to the east of Busan at different elevations but this was thwarted by a low marine stratus layer that forced the aircraft to above 4000 feet. ATC control traffic into they airport on Jeju Island would not permit the DC-8 to fly over the island or very near it. Nevertheless mush useful data was acquired the flight concluded with final Seoul Stereoroute.
