Comments:Cooperative flight with HU-25; KLFI-ATLIC-ZIBUT-AZEZU-30.67N/070.20W-AZEZU-SIE-KLFI (In flight, Runway 26 takeoff, right turn out on heading, and return route amended to included SBY-V1-HPW then direct KLFI). Continuous climb to final altitude FL280. Flight level winds ~100 kts from the WSW. Right turn to reverse course at endpoint. Maintained FL280 until approximately SBY on return. 4x dropsondes deployed. Two aircraft generally within 5 nm, with excursions outside of 10 nm only occurring after main research portions of flight. ZIBUT-AZEZU Leg aligned with Aster overpass at 1545Z. Laser off briefly at 1755Z for interloper aircraft. All objectives were achieved and no system discrepancies were noted - pending post-flight data analysis. Pilots: Coldsnow/Sandeen QNCs: Shingler
