Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Very good flight. Completed all the science objectives including spirals over Coalinga Airport and the TCCON site at Edwards AFB. Some delays due to air traffic near Coalinga. All the science instruments performed well throughout the flight. We took off with only 4 of 5 Methane Sounder wavelength generators operational, however, the Methane Sounder team got the 5th generator working shortly after takeoff. The aircraft also performed well with no writeups.
