Log Number:168007PI:James Crawford
Funding Source:Barry Lefer - NASA - SMD - ESD Tropospheric Composition Program
Purpose of Flight:Transit
Comments:A successful 1st leg of the redeploy to Palmdale. The mission included two vertical profiles from high altitude to 5,500ft above sea level north of the Aleutian Islands. The desire was to go lower, however, clouds at the lower levels did not allow us to go VFR. Most of the science instruments obtained good data during the flight, however, ten of the instruments reported some issues during part or all of the flight that need to be addressed. All, but one of the instruments, were serviced/repaired while the aircraft was being refueling in Anchorage and in good shape for the final transit flight to Palmdale.
