We successfully completed the Venable 01B mission last night. The mission went very smoothly and the skies were perfectly clear for all the fight lines. This mission closes out our science flights for the Fall Ushuaia campaign, which turned out to be more successful than anticipated.
Today is a pack day and the aircraft will depart for WFF on Monday. It will again make two hops to get to WFF and should arrive on Wednesday.
