Comments: 
806 took off at 0933L and landed at 1736 for an 8.1 hour flight duration. There were no fault lights with instruments today. The targets were the HyspIRI Santa Barbara Box and the low altitude SARP SB lines. The INS also worked great today. The SW corner of the box had clouds. Early in the flight Tim said he was surprised how little smoke there was from the "Sherpa" fire (near Rincon State Beach). The fire seemed insignificant. However, later in the flight the smoke really expanded. Tim estimated that because of smoke, the sky was 90% clear. It was 100% sky clear in the Central Valley (Bakersfield area).
