Comments: 
Comments: The K-Bay line over Coconut Island Oahu was again the priority. Takeoff at 0849; Landing at 1200 for a 3.2 hour mission. The pilot commented that it was really hard to see out of the cockpit with so many clouds. First Kauai line: 90% clouds; 2nd Kauai line: 100% clouds. The north end of the K-Bay line had 10% cloud cover; south end of line had 100% clouds. There was a high thin layer of clouds for most of the remainder of the flight. Molokai was clear beneath the high thin clouds. Maui had 50% low clouds. Big Island (line 28) was sky clear (0% clouds); L29: 5% clouds; L30: 0% clouds; L31: 0% clouds. Stu was RTB after this line. The instruments operated as expected. There was turbulence west of the Big Island. The coldest temp seen was -73 deg F. Stu said it was very cloudy/stormy over the Big Island volcanoes. Stu Broce was the pilot.
