Flight Number: 
17-6013
Payload Configuration: 
AVIRIS-C, MASTER, HyTES
Nav Data Collected: 
Yes
Total Flight Time: 
2.1 hours
Comments: 
The takeoff time was delayed for one hour because of an ER-2 electrical issue. The INMARSAT and instrument panel breaker kept getting tripped during pre-flight. It was determined that a wire was crimped behind the science panel. The ER-2 avionics techs fixed it and we were able to proceed with the mission. Flying the first volcano line, the entire perimeter of the volcano was covered in clouds. For the trade-wind line, it was estimated that the sky was only 5% clear. At the end of both lines, Dean said he could see the ground. The buoy line was very clear – flew two runs. The low-altitude calibration run was flown at 3280 feet. Dean said he was flying directly into the sun.
