COAST: First science flight

Our first science flight is underway.  The Twin Otter was over the first flight line at 11:10, in time for a MERIS overpass at 11:36 and a Terra overpass at 12:15.  The photo here shows the plane with the radiometers in the fairing just above and behind the cockpit.  The AATS is also visible behind the fairing, partially obscured by a propeller on the right.
