Comments:ACTIVATE research flight. 45-min delay holding for takeoff awaiting 18 fighter aircraft landing from instrument approaches. No impact to data because King Air had enough fuel to delay airborne and wait. Outbound leg at 9,000' MSL flew 4 steady speed calibrations at 184 KIAS, 230 KIAS, 263 KIAS and 295 KIAS. Gross weight approximately 31,000 lbs. Science data collection was between 500' AGL and 7,000' MSL with most cloud data collected between 1,500' and 4,600'. Occasional above and below boundary level data were collected. Data collected until ATLIC on return where an IFR recovery was needed and headings/altitudes were per ATC direction.
