Flight Number: 
120128
Payload Configuration: 
DC-8 OIB Deployment - Chile 2011
Nav Data Collected: 
Yes
Total Flight Time: 
11.1 hours
Comments: 
Weather was perfect over our target, the George VI Sound. Data collection began with a long transect down the center of the sound, and then continued with eleven lines stitching across the sound shore to shore. Views of mountain peaks and ranges were abundant. Take-off was delayed nearly an hour due to problems with the airport fueling station. About 3 minutes of DMS data was lost due to a technical problem, and a GPS glitch complicated one of the lines for ATM. The ATM data should be recoverable in post flight processing. Otherwise, all objectives were met. The aircraft is ready for the final science flight opportunity tomorrow.
