Depart Salina and join with GV for instrument comparison NW of KSNL starting at 7,000 msl, climbing to FL120, and climbing to FL170. Total 45 minutes in formation flight. Low altitude flight (~1000 agl) over ethanol production plants and agricultural feed lots in SW Nebraska and N to central Colorado while in transit to modeled storm outflow in Texas panhandle region. “L” wall was flown S and SW of storm system at 5500 msl & 10,000 msl was flown for ~ 1.0 hours. Move to SE corner of storm outflow area and spiral climb from 1,000 msl to FL350. Fly through anvil cloud initially at FL350 moving to the NW and climbing to FL380. Transit back to Salina initially at FL380 progressively descending into Salina airfield.
