OIB Summer/Fall 2017
Mission Location: 
Kangerlussuaq, Greenland
Mission Summary: 
Hi everyone
Today turned out to be a slightly shorter flight day than planned with the plane returning to base with an oil leak.
From the planned Umanaq flight, we surveyed the 2 coastal lines plus Icesat tracks for the transit to and from Kangerlussuaq. There were clear skies on the lines and both LVIS and the camera operated normally. 
After returning to base early afternoon, our crew worked to identify the problem part, and have arranged with Dynamic for a new one to be hand carried from Bridgewater, arriving Friday (thank you for the quick turnaround!). Plan is to resume operations on Saturday.  In the meantime, we’ll get to enjoy a mid-week down day.
Thanks!
Michelle
