Another complete set of flight lines were obtained on the 27th. Several technical issues caused us to scale back the plan for the day, but with all instruments running. We skipped spiral maneuvers and "painted the box" at a single altitude to get a good spatial resolution with the imaging spectrometer. Since we had only one satellite overpass (Aqua), it seemed fortuitous to delay a full-up science flight until Friday when the weather promised to continue excellent and both Terra and Envisat would pass over near noon.
