Comments: 
Flight 16-9010 took off at 1328 local and landed at 1524 local (1.9 hours). The NASDAT worked the entire flight. Needed extra manpower to push the ER-2 taxiing out and after landing because winds were at the ER-2 limit. Tim Williams (mobile pilot) commented that Dean Neeley did an outstanding job landing the ER-2 airplane in the strong winds.
