Comments: 
Takeoff at 0845; Landing at 1136 for a 2.8 hour mission. Stu said it was a race to beat the clouds moving in from the northwest. Completed the following lines with percent cloud cover. All lines with clouds had thin high clouds. Line 33: 25% clouds; L32: 0% (sky clear); L31: 20% clouds; L30: 5% clouds. Stu had some problems with the airplane. Cabin pressure was fluctuating. Stu descended down to 28k feet to fly the cal line. The MASTER instrument was left on during the cal line. The cal line was flown twice: 1st line: 20% clouds; 2nd line: 0% clouds middle of the line. Turns out, this was all the science that could be done today. The clouds were moving in quickly. There was a little turbulence at the usual location. Stu Broce was the pilot.
