Comments:Six lines were flown over Lake Tahoe at 11.8K, 7.1K, and 9.9K. Sites were labeled as the "Tahoe Coast Guard" and the "Tahoe Buoy" Before the flight the crew worked on insulating the sensor and covering the openings in the floor plate with the hope that it would help keep the senor thermally stable. During the flight the sensor did exhibit better thermal stability. The flight crew flew the Otter at its slowest sampling speed of 65 to 70 KIAS with flaps set at between 12 degrees.
