Comments: 
Flew the Lake Tahoe Box with AVIRIC-C and MASTER. Takeoff was delayed because the fail light for MASTER would not go out. Turns out that MASTER got hung booting up - had to be rebooted. James Jacobson said sometimes MASTER hangs up because of the old SCSI Interface. Coach said there were clouds everywhere except over the target where it was sky clear. The weather forecast was spot on - great call by AFRC Meteorologist Scott Wiley. Coach said he was late turning Q6 on for the 1st line. During post flight, Coach asked why Q6 needs to be turned off during the turns then back on for the data lines. Marco, Kent, and James all said that turning Q6 off and on helps with data processing. Today was an unexpected, very successful flight. Greg Nelson was the pilot.
