Comments:Science flight for the HU-25 in support of ACTIVATE Campaign #4, conducted cooperatively with the UC-12. Route of flight planned for KFLI-ATLIC-ZIBUT-KENDA-JENYY-ACK-KPVD, but changed inflight to KLFI-ATLIC-ZIBUT-ILSLES-ZIBUT-ATLIC-KLFI due to a maintenance issue with the UC-12. Departed Rwy08 direct to ATLIC climbing to 5k ft MSL for initial transit, then descending to 1000’ MSL approximately 15 nautical miles north of KLFI. Winds were moderate (<25 kts) out of the west throughout the flight, with clouds throughout most portions of the route from 1000’ – 10’000’ MSL. During the return leg the HU-25 made a 2700 turn at ZIBET to close spacing with the UC-12 from 18 nmi to 8 nmi, and a 3600 turn at OUTES to again close the separation between aircraft. Unplanned tanker operations in W-387 on the return leg required the UC-12 to offset south into W-72, therefore the HU-25 also offset south and was able to keep the flight paths within 7 lateral miles of each other. Time coordination with the UC-12 was always within 10 minutes, and usually less than 5 minutes. All objectives were achieved and with no discrepancies noted.
