Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Science flight #8. This flight resurveyed the peninsula wall down the north south length of Korea and the southeast runs past Busan. We attempted to measure air quality to near the surface with a missed approach to Gwangju but were overruled by ATC. We were more successful on the southeast runs with a missed approach to Daegu airport. The think is that except for the stereoroute (missed approach at Seoul AB and climb in R-17 special use airspace the uncertainties of attempting missed approaches are not worth the risk to the flight plan timing. Three stereoroutes flown on this mission.
