Sea Ice, IceSat Lines, and overflight of several ice core sample locations were the targets for this flight. All objectives were met and all instruments operating well. Flight began with an airfield overflight for ATM calibration. Visibility was poor for the first 45 minutes of our 1,500 ft. AGL data run, but weather improved significantly for the remainder of the flight. Our furthest southern point was 79 deg., 56.7 min. The aircraft remains flight ready.
