Funding Source:Jassim Al-Saadi - NASA - SMD - ESD Tropospheric Chemistry Program
Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Flight launched in order to exploit a chance of convection stemming from smoke from the northern Colorado wildfire. Cells developed as hoped and inflow at low altitude and outflow at high altitude were conducted around two thunderstorms producing significant lightening and ATC reported funnel cloud sightings from airliners. Near the end of the survey the DC-8 was descending in clear air and at about FL250 suffered a No.1 engine flameout. Engine restarted through normal procedures and concluded the mission and returned to Salina. Maintenance investigation is underway.
