An update on our status. The NASA P3 aircraft parts and tools needed for returning to flying status are here in Fairbanks and the NASA aircrew is working on the P3 today. It’s hoped that a check flight can be flown tomorrow, and perhaps we can return to flying science missions on Sunday evening or Monday (return science mission to Thule Greenland).
In the meantime, science teams are working on data and other tasks, and taking advantage of our time in Fairbanks. Some folks went hiking, others skiing/snowboarding, and some evening meals and campfires were arranged.
