Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:Very good flight. OLYMPEX science flight # 9 included a successful Global Precipitaion Measurement (GPM) Satellite underpass followed by 3 racetracks that included overflights of the NPOL and DOW RADARs. Some of the racetracks were flown with ER-2 overhead. One dropsonde was launched and data successfully received. The aircraft returned with no writeups. Science instruments operated nominally except CosMIR lost two lower-priority channels and needed some post-flight maintenance. Next flight anticipated Dec 4.
