OIB ATM sitrep March 31, 2017 pm

A successful high priority modified Alexander-Petermann 01 mission was completed in sunny conditions with just a few turbulence bumps today. All OIB instruments ran well.
We’ve had a very successful week of OIB missions!
Tomorrow the P3 will be prepared for a science mission transit to Longyearbyrn Norway (wether permitting) on Monday. Sunday will be a “hard down” rest day.
