Mission Summary: 

Hi everyone

After 3 days of bad weather plus a down day, we were finally able to get in the air today to complete remaining lines in the Umanaq plan flying the 2 inland lines that we had had to cut out on our first attempt with a plane issue.
We were able to add 2 low priority Jakobshavn-coast lines on the transit to and from the area, increasing coverage in that region also. Weather is still far from perfect here with multilayer clouds and fog lingering, however weather cooperated in the region we were targeting and we finished with well over 95% coverage on lines. 
Tomorrow, we are hoping to fly the Summit flight, with potentially a flight to the SE coast (low priority) on Wednesday or Thursday before returning to the US on Friday.
Thanks!
Michelle
