Payload Configuration: 
AVIRIS-C and MASTER
Nav Data Collected: 
Yes
Total Flight Time: 
3.1 hours
Comments: 
Took off at 1806 GMT; landing at 2113 GMT for a 3.1 hour mission. The pilot did not see any fail lights or have any issues with the AVIRIS-C and MASTER instruments. Instrument operations went as expected. Reversing the pod heater blowers and tightening the window port bolts fixed the pod pressurization and temperature issue. Pod pressure and temperature now at normal values. Line SB24A had 50% cloud coverage; Line SB24B had 25% cloud coverage. Lines SB31A, SB31B, SB34A, and SB34B had 10% cloud coverage. At 2043 GMT, the decision was made to RTB because of the increase in clouds over the science target area. Greg “Coach” Nelson was the pilot.
