Comments: 
Science flight over the Recovery Glacier area southeast of the peninsula region. Data collection altitude was approximately 1500 ft AGL where ATM, DMS, Ku radar, Snow radar, MCords radar and Gravimeter collected data. In route cruise altitude to start of data runs was FL330/350 and return flight was at FL400. Data start/stop times (UTC) on each data ground track were approximately 1601/1620, 1626/1645, 1651/1709, 1715/1733, 1739/1758, 1803/1822, & 1827/1846. Weather at Recovery Glacier was clear with light winds allowing for 100% data collected on each ground track. After completing all data tracks then the return course was altered to cross all ground tracks while maintain 1500 AGL and a true heading of ~ 300 deg until crossing the Cape Recovery ice feature at 1912. A single calibration ramp pass was accomplished at 2331 just prior to landing. Takeoff 302 11 59 46, landing 302 23 31 50. 3.5 hrs science data collection.
