Comments:Eric Munoz, Phil Hall, Tim Williams (PIC), Hernan Posada, Kent Fuller (Co-Pilot), Matt Graham, Chris Naftel, Robert Rivera (MD) – Comments from Eric Jensen upon completion of the flight: Our third long flight (just completed) was glorious. The 23.5 hour flight included numerous profiles through the TTL, sampling of in situ cirrus, convective detrainment, jet crossings, etc., in addition to another good dataset for evaluating fuel temperature response to cold ambient temperatures. Real time remote sensing data (from CPL and MTP) was used to coordinate the vertical profiles. The instruments all appeared to be performing very well. We should have a bonanza of data.
