Purpose of Flight:Science
Comments:This was the second science flight for CPEX. The flight was conducted just east of Belize in the Honduras FIR (MHTG). The flight proceeded from Fort Lauderdale to the southwest and around Cuba to the west. Two standard box patterns were flown around a predefined area and a few small convective cells were observed. Twenty-two dropsondes were launched with five sondes failing to complete telemetry. Plan for tomorrow is a down day in anticipation of a pattern developing later in the week and daily missions.
