Depart Salina and transit to area W/NW of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Transit altitudes out of SLN included time at FL170, & FL240. “L” patterns around cell area were initially at FL170, FL140, FL100, FL060 & FL040 sampling storm inflow atmosphere. Transit to downwind side of storm system and spiral to FL330. Fly steps of ladder pattern in cirrus clouds of storm anvil sampling storm outflow atmosphere at FL360 & FL370. Climb to FL400 for instruments functional check and descend to FL330 to perform MMS maneuver. Return to Salina. NCAR GV participated at high altitude downwind of storms during this same period.
