Comments:This was the sixth science flight from SLN for the DCOTSS campaign. Take off occurred 0854 local. Ground ops went very well which allowed an early takeoff.

N3 FL after P3; ran fail checklist twice with no recovery. Light chop climbing through FL620. Lots of thunderstorms plume visible all day. Landed 1536 local. Gary Toroni was the pilot.
