Comments:This flight targeted convective activity identified in GOES-16 imagery downloaded aboard the DC-8 with about 5-minute latency. This flight was challenging as the flight passed from Miami Oceanic near Havana FIR into Houston Oceanic and then into Merida FIR and then returned to Fort Lauderdale and nearly all of the route of flight was not planned or filed in advance. Approximately 23 of 26 sondes acquired data.
