Mission Summary: 

routine flight out to 10S, 0E along a diagonal from 20S, 10E. Two full profiles were done along the way, beginning at 20S and 15S, 10S was reached thereafter, and the plane basically transited back home, with some sampling of the aerosol deck and embedded mid-level clouds centered around 17S.
