Comments: 
Science flight #9. The purpose of this flight was to determine the extent of air contaminants moving west to east across the Yellow Sea and survey the southeast corridor between Seoul and Busan. Air this day seemed particularly foul based on instrument teams’ remarks over the intercom. The first Yellow Sea pass on the southbound run was at 24,000 feet. The next runs were at 500 feet, 1000 feet, and 3,500 feet. The southeast runs towards Busan were at 23,000 feet, 1000 feet, and 4000 feet. Stereoroute patterns were at the beginning, middle, and end of the flight.
