Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments: Fifth mission over Colorado. The initial objective was to investigate wildfire contribution to convective activity in the Wyoming & No. Colorado Front Range area. Flew several passes at altitude of inflow into multiple squall lines as far south as Colorado Springs. Nearly whole flight was conducted above FL320 and we had increasing difficulty with forward cargo pit temperature dropping to about 40°F and subsequent failure of ATHOS laser. Returning to Salina Kansas City Center advised us that our Mode C altitude reporting was intermittent.
